Questions And Answers

Questions And Answers​

Q. How does the Cremation Society™ of Oklahoma work?

A. The Cremation Society™ is notified immediately at the time of death. The body is then transported to the Demuth Funeral Home & Cremation Society's office and crematory facility where it is held until the death certificate and cremation permit can be issued by the State Medical Examiner's Office and the body is then cremated.

Q. Where is the body held prior to the cremation taking place and does the body have to be embalmed?

A. The body is held at the Demuth Funeral Home & Cremation Society's modern on-site facilities and with proper refrigeration the body does not have to be embalmed. 

Q. Is there any viewing of the body allowed prior the cremation taking place?

A. With a direct cremation the body is not embalmed, so traditional viewing options are limited. We can accommodate a one-time identification viewing at our Demuth Funeral Home & Cremation Society facilities for the immediate family members only.

Q. Where does the Cremation Society™ perform the actual cremation process?

A. Demuth Funeral Home & Cremation Society™ has its own crematory on-site at our facilities. This allows all aspects of your cremation to be handled by us at one convenient location.

A. The cremated remains, "ashes", will be handled according to any written instructions or returned to the next-of-kin to do with as they choose.

Q. Is payment required before the body will be transported from the place of death to the Cremation Society's facilities?

Q. Can you pre-pay the direct cremation cost of $1,550?

A. Yes. You will also receive a lifetime guarantee that this is all you will ever pay. The pre-paid funds will be placed with an Oklahoma licensed and supervised insurance company. At the time of death Demuth Funeral Home & Cremation Society™ retains the principle plus any growth, in consideration of your lifetime guarantee.

Q. Are these pre-paid funds refundable?

A. In accordance with Oklahoma Statutes, prepaid funeral funds, whether with any funeral home or Demuth Funeral Home & Cremation Society™ of Oklahoma, are refundable, including any growth that has occurred on the account.

The burial benefits will vary depending upon the eligibility of the veteran.

Q. Is the modern trend toward Cremation?

A. Definitely. Cremation is being utilized in more than one-half of all deaths in some parts of the country. Of course cremation is as old as man himself, having been practiced for centuries in other cultures. Our modern approach is simply a reflection of our growing concern for the environment combined with an appreciation for the simplicity and dignity of the cremation rite.

Q. How do you join the Cremation Society™ of Oklahoma?

A. Complete the Membership Registration Form for the Cremation Society™ of Oklahoma and pay a one time membership fee of $15.00 for each individual membership. This fee defrays the cost of setting up and maintaining the records. It is not refundable nor is it an offset to final cremation costs. We will register the membersip and send out a wallet-sized membership card and a certificate of registration. Members or family members may call or write us regarding any related questions. By removing this troublesome burden you will be doing a very thoughtful thing for your surviving loved ones.
