What do you need to do before starting the cremation of a person?
The procedure for organizing the cremation of a person is almost identical to the actions in organizing a funeral:
It is necessary to contact the Punjabi bagh cremation ground contact number by phone to call a specialist who will take all the necessary actions;
In the morgue, the body is usually 3 – 7 days, so the further order of actions is approximate as follows:
- Selection and order of the necessary ritual goods for cremation (coffin, clothes for the deceased, etc.)
- Order of ritual transport (hearse), services of the escort brigade (porters).
- Ordering a funeral service and a civil memorial service.
- Organization of wakes.
- Selection of a plot in the cemetery/cell in the columbarium.
- Payment for crematorium services.
Independently call the Punjabi baghshamshanghat number to draw up an examination protocol, doctors to ascertain death (and order a free hearse to the morgue), and further collection of documents.
On the day of cremation, it is necessary to arrive at the morgue about half an hour before the agreed time of delivery of the deceased’s body with all the necessary documents and ritual accessories.
After burning the body, the ashes of the deceased are placed in a unique capsule or urn, after which they can be taken away by the relatives of the deceased. The latter decide how to dispose of them – to scatter the ashes, place the urn in the cell of the columbarium or bury it in the grave.
