Entrusted to our Care
The operations area of our new crematory facility houses four technology advanced and energy efficient cremation chambers designed and manufactured by industry leader and innovator Matthews International. Our operation integrates a computerized chain of custody identification protocol that includes a decedent-specific barcode ID scanned to eight separate checkpoints while the decedent’s remains and cremains are in our care. To ensure respectful, dignified and secure treatment of decedents in our custody, we provide 1580 cubic feet of walk-in refrigeration storage, a private area for O.C.M.E. viewing, a canopied entrance and exit area for hearses and vans, a 365 day / 24 hour per day alarmed security system featuring interior and exterior DVR surveillance cameras, coded entry, motion detectors, full perimeter flood lighting, and a monitored fire alarm system with fire sprinklers throughout the entire facility.
The public area of our facility features the Ridge Room, a beautifully appointed 615 square foot space appropriate for small service gatherings of forty or fewer attendees. The Ridge Room is well-suited for services with the decedent’s body or cremains present and memorial services, furnishings include comfortable seating, casket bier, flower stands, easels, soft lighting and plenty of surface space for guest books, photographs and other memorabilia.
For safety and convenience of those who choose to witness the cremation start sequence, a wall separating the operations area from the Ridge Room has a large viewing window adjacent to a private cremains chamber. There is ample parking for service attendees as well as ADA accessibility and ADA restroom facilities.
Blue Hill Crematory is a Third-Party Cremation Facility. With the help of a Funeral Director of your choice, pre-need or at-need cremation arrangements can be made.
