Our Code of Ethics

 

 

Palmetto Cremation Society is a proud member of the Cremation Association of North America. One of our owners, Mark Smith, is a past president of CANA. We support the organization and its standards. As such we faithfully adhere to the following Code of Ethics:

 

 

 

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;
  • That the dead of our society should be memorialized through a commemorative means suitable to the survivors.
