Cremation Code of Ethics
At Dakota Crematory, we are members of the Cremation Association of North America, which provides advanced certifications to our staff. We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics, an assurance to you of our commitment to dignity and honesty, and we adhere to a rigid Cremation Protocol.
CANA Code of Cremation Practice
In the practice of cremation, we believe:
In dignity and respect in the care of the deceased, in compassion for the living who survive them, and in the memorialization of life;
That a Cremation Authority should be responsible for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of respect at all times;
That the greatest care should be taken in the appointment of crematory staff members, any of whom must not, by conduct or demeanor, bring the crematory or cremation into disrepute;
That cremation should be considered as preparation for memorialization; and
That the dead of our society should be memorialized through a commemorative means suitable to the survivors.
