Logan Funeral Homes offers this guarantee to ensure you that your loved ones’ remains are respectfully cared for before, during, and after cremation.
We utilize sophisticated identification procedures similar to those used in hospitals to give you and your loved ones peace of mind and a high degree of confidence in the cremation process.

When your loved one arrives at Logan Funeral Homes, they will remain in the shelter of our expert care. A representative from our Funeral Home will carefully transfer your loved one to Delaware County Crematory (please ask us about our relationship with this Crematory). At that time, a Certified Cremation Specialist will manage and supervise every phase of the cremation.
This is a critical step that we complete before each and every cremation. After our staff prepares your loved one in a gown or the clothing of your choice, we will ask you or a family representative to confirm your loved one's identity. You may also use this time for a family viewing, which will give you a chance to say goodbye before the cremation. If you choose not to participate in this step, we will ask you to provide us with a current photo ID so our staff can positively identify your loved one.
After the cremation is complete, a Certified Cremation Specialist will place your loved one's cremated remains along with the PIN tag into the urn selected by your family. We then place the identification sticker inside the urn with the ashes and file a second identification sticker inside the urn with the ashes and file a second identification card in our permanent records.
We use a high-tech tracking system at our Funeral Home and Crematory to assure that your loved one remains safe and secure throughout the cremation process. As soon as your loved one arrives at our Funeral Home, we assign them a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that is stamped into a metal tag and logged into our computer tracking system. This allows us to track every phase of the cremation process—from the moment your loved one enters our care to the moment we return the cremated remains to you.
Our professional staff will carefully manage all critical paperwork to ensure permits, authorizations, cremation schedule and other necessary items have been properly documented.
We maintain a thorough control log that tracks the important details for your loved one's cremation. This log includes your loved one's name, critical dates and times, and all cremation technicians involved throughout the process.
If you have pre-planned a basic cremation service with Logan Funeral Homes and your loved passes away outside our service area (but still within the continental U.S.), we will carefully coordinate with another cremation provider in that area. Our caring staff will ensure that this out-of-town provider honors your plan at no additional cost.
We are extremely proud of the first-class facilities at Logan Funeral Homes and Delaware County Crematory. We maintain an open door policy and strive to make these facilities as accommodating and accessible to families as possible. You are welcome to inspect these facilities as well as attend or witness the cremation process.
The PIN tag assigned to your loved one remains with either the body or ashes at all times before during and after cremation. This enables us to keep track of your loved one every step of the way
We encourage families to hold a meaningful tribute or service before or after the cremation as a final goodbye to their loved one. At Logan Funeral Homes, our attentive staff specializes in creating unforgettable tributes to honor and celebrate each one-of-a-kind life. We will listen to your stories, gather your ideas, and arrange a memorable service to share your loved one's life. Whether you want to hold a visitation prior to the cremation, a traditional ceremony at your church or our chapel, an upbeat Celebration of Life, or an intimate gathering just for the family, we will handle all the details for you.
