CLEAN, SECURE CREMATORY

We are among the very few mortuaries to operate our own crematory inside our clean and secure facility. Colorado is the only state without licensing or inspections of crematories, which allows anyone with little or no qualifications to offer cremation from garages, industrial warehouses, contract crematories and other substandard facilities. Don't settle for these second-rate cremation services. Turn to for superior Caldwell-Kirk Funeral & Cremation Services care.

 

CERTIFIED EXPERTS

As members of the National Funeral Directors Association, our staff receives advanced certifications to perform cremations. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics, an assurance to you of our commitment to dignity and honesty.

 

UNDERSTANDING THE CREMATION PROCESS

Cremation is the clean and ecologically safe process of reducing a body to its basic elements. During a cremation, the casket or container holding the deceased is placed in the cremation chamber. The chamber temperature reaches up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

After a couple of hours, the cremated remains are carefully removed from the cremation chamber. The remains are then processed into a material called "cremated remains." Our cremation experts then place the cremated remains in a temporary container or an urn chosen and purchased by the family. Throughout the entire process, we use a carefully controlled labeling system to ensure accurate identification of the cremated remains. This process follows our commitment to providing the highest standard of care and our cremation code of ethics guidelines.

Many families are under the misconception that they cannot hold a meaningful service with a cremation. This is completely untrue. At  Caldwell-Kirk Funeral & Cremation Services we help you arrange any type service you desire to be held before or after the cremation.  Cremation does not limit your options—in fact, it often opens the door to many unique service and memorialization opportunities.
