According to Ralph Buckner, owner and CEO of both Cleveland locations, “With all of the recent controversy and confusion in the local area over the disposition of pets into landfills and the tragedy a few years ago of the Tri-State Crematorium in Noble, GA, we want to assure those using our crematory that we abide by the highest standards of safeguarding, tracking and transparency throughout our entire cremation process. It is for this reason that we implemented the Cremation with Confidence™ guarantee to reassure families that their loved ones will be well cared for at all times.”
Ralph Buckner Funeral Home & Crematory and Faithful Friends Pet Crematory and Funeral Home owns and operates their own separate crematories. Tennessee state law requires that human and pet crematories operate in completely separate facilities. The crematory is open for inspection by the public, and a member of the decedent’s immediate family can observe the cremation if desired. “Not every family wishes to witness the cremation, but for those that do, we wanted to make it available,” says Ralph Buckner. “Some religions even require it.”
The Cremation with Confidence™ is a 10-step process and is summarized by the assurance that your loved one never leaves our care. The entire process is safeguarded, tracked and transparent so families may be assured of the professionalism and compassion with which all cremations are performed. “These 10-steps ensure integrity of the cremation process, enabling us to guarantee that the cremated remains returned to families are those of their loved one,” Buckner said.
