Most Common Questions We GetClick on any questions below to reveal the answers.
- Follow the funeral home directly to the crematory.
- Choose one of our “Preferred Funeral Homes” they guarantee “single body transport”.
Most funeral homes will transport as many as 6 bodies at a time to the crematory. We DO NOT allow this. Lighthouse crematory has a strict “Single Body” policy, we will only allow one body to be delivered at a time. Funeral homes have various “Multi-step identification process’”. However, they are useless unless the crematory certifies that the body was delivered individually and respectfully. The more bodies delivered at once, increases the chances of misidentification and shows NO respect for your loved one.
At lighthouse, we receive and cremate your loved one individually. We have physically limited the total cremations we can do per day and per year. A funeral home would never deliver multiple bodies to a cemetery at the same time for burial, why should cremation be any different? Because they know you the family will not be at the crematory to see the blatant disregard for the respect your loved one deserves. We believe that the small amount is worth it for the individual care that is taken with your loved one.
Also, we are carbon neutral. This means we pay extra for clean energy to offset any emissions we produce. In fact, the program we use doubles the amount of renewable energy we use. So in reality, we are a carbon Shrinking crematory.
Funeral Homes FormsBelow are the forms used by each funeral home.
Maine First and Only Carbon “Negative” Crematory
What is Green Cremation?
“Green” cremation is usually a contradiction in terms.
Because fuel is used to run the cremator, carbon is put into the air.
However, at Lighthouse crematory we purchase energy from Maine-Made renewable “Green” sources OVER the amount we use in the cremation process.
What does that mean?
Well, every time we cremate we know how much CO2 goes into the air, we then purchase DOUBLE that amount in renewable “Green” energy.
So by choosing Lighthouse Crematory you are having a positive impact on the environment.
