Approximately 11% (2010) of funeral services in the Republic of Ireland now choose Cremation, 10% in Northern Ireland and almost 73% (2010) in Great Britain.There are now three Crematoria in Dublin - Glasnevin, Mount Jerome and Newlands Cross.
Before a coffin is placed inside a cremator, the cremator technician checks the nameplate of the coffin to ensure that the correct person is being cremated. The technician fills out an identity card which follows the remains throughout the entire cremation process, guarantying correct identification. Any metal or heavy plastic handles are removed and recycled at this stage as they do not allow us to achieve our stringent emissions targets, if they are cremated with the coffin.
