Lexington Crematory

The Lexington Crematory, with its three cremation chambers, is located on The Lexington Cemetery grounds. The facility also houses a chapel, designed and decorated, to offer comfort to family and friends during the cremation process and provide a viewing area, if desired, for families to fulfill their religious beliefs. The Lexington Crematory is state licensed and Cremation Association of North America (CANA) certified. The Lexington Crematory is the first cremation facility in the Central Kentucky area servicing both Central and Eastern Kentucky.

The operators are trained and certified according to the law of Kentucky. In Kentucky, state law requires that the body of the deceased must be removed from the place of death by a licensed funeral director for cremation. The Lexington Cemetery works with funeral directors in the same manner it would if the deceased were to be buried in a lot or entombed in a mausoleum on the grounds.

“The two independent agencies, working together in obtaining the proper credentials and legal documentation, insure the utmost care and handling of the deceased,” Scalf said. “This is an important for the family and provides checks and balances before the permanent process of cremation begins.”
