How to Inspect a Crematorium

To support individuals and families in selecting the best crematory for their cremation needs, the Funeral Consumers Alliance advises individuals and families wishing to inspect local crematories as part of their due diligence activities to:

  • Check for overall cleanliness inside the cremation facility, the cremation unit itself (often called the retort), as well as the removal/pick-up vehicles used in transporting physical cremate to the crematory
  • Ask the staff about the year, make, and model of the cremation unit(s). Does it feature environmental protection in the form of filters and air scrubbers? Is the retort (or retorts) energy-efficient?
  • Check the cleanliness of the refrigeration or body-storage facilities.

Other questions you should ask while you are inspecting a crematory can be found on the Questions to Ask page.
