Don’t Have Any Doubts: The Importance of an On-site Crematory

We have all seen the horrific stories in the media about the families who have been devastated by an unsavory, or just irresponsible, funeral home that somehow managed to cremate the wrong person, or return the wrong remains to a family. Can you imagine the pain these families experience?


It’s enough to make some people question the safety of cremation altogether, but families can rest assured that won’t happen if they choose Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers. Why are we so confident about that? Because we own and operate our own crematory, allowing us to manage and oversee all of our procedures. Not everyone can say this. Many funeral homes and cremation societies outsource cremation to third-party providers – sometimes to different cities or counties. At Lake Ridge, your loved one never leaves our diligent and professional care.


We are also the only family-owned funeral provider in the area to offer a 10-step cremation process backed by our exclusive Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee. Our trademarked process ensures from the moment your loved one arrives at our funeral home, through the cremation process, to the return of the cremated remains to you, they are treated with the greatest dignity and respect.


Our crematory is operated by our own knowledgeable and licensed staff. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics. Our code of ethics goes above and beyond what the state requires of us, but we don’t mind. We’ll do anything to make our families more comfortable.


Owning our own crematory allows us to be 100% certain our equipment is always state of the art, immaculately maintained, and environmentally safe. We not only allow but encourage you to tour our facility in Lubbock and inspect the equipment.


So, if you’re considering cremation for yourself or your loved one, know not all cremation providers are created equal. But if you choose Lake Ridge, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one will be well cared for and that the cremated remains you receive are, in fact, those of your loved one.


You only get one chance to get this final farewell right, the only choice for cremation is Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers.
