Mount Pleasant Cemetery is located right in beautiful Center Moriches, on Long Island, New York. We are proud to provide people with a whole host of dependable cemetery services. One of the those services is our crematory process, which is something we have looked into improving over the years. Some individuals prefer cremations over ground burials. We are careful to give the utmost respect and dignity to your deceased loved one just like we would if it was a ground burial.
After a body is fully cremated, you are left with the remains. These remains are also known as ashes. After the cremation, the ashes are then gathered and placed in a decorative urn. The way in which the ashes are collected is with the use of a wire brush. The wire brush moves along the bottom and pushes the remains to the back of the crematory machine. But besides your loved one's remains, what often gets included is the cement that gets scraped up and any other remaining remnants present in the machine. Our certified crematory operators do our very best to gather the remains of just your loved one. We are very careful to clean out and sweep the unit as best as we can before beginning another cremation.
Since 2012, the crematorium at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery has been using a state-of-the-art patent pending cremation sweeping tool. This tool is called "Clean Sweep." What makes our system different is that, unlike the typical wire brush that is used to clean out the retorts, our tool uses air to extract only the remaining fragments (ashes) of your loved one. This more effectively eliminates the remains of the cremations and reduces what is known as the "co-mingling of ashes." All of the innovations and updates are due to our need and desire to give you and your loved ones the types of services they deserve. As technology in this industry advances, we are sure to be on the front line.
