A heat-protective suit, thick gloves and a face mask are the uniform of a person who sees off the coffins with the deceased and sends them to the crematorium oven.

At the end of the cremation, which, by the way, is not accompanied by any smell, the ashes mainly consist of bones and a coffin, since the muscles and fat completely disintegrate. The crematorium technician shared that sometimes there are "calcified bones" and metal objects from piercing or after operations. They are processed and sent to the relatives of the deceased at their request. "Rings, gold and silver melt and harden into small balls, which are then sent for recycling, unless relatives asked them to return."
