Crematorium Worker Shares Photos Of His Workplace To Make A Point How Precious Life Is & It’s Chilling

What do you think it’s like to burn bodies for a living?

It’s not at all easy, I tell you.

A crematory operator’s duties include loading corpses into the crematory machines, scraping shards of bones out of the machines and most importantly, keeping each dead body’s parts separate. One of the grossest things about working in a crematorium is when they have to deal with the severely injured or decomposed bodies. The foul odor!

You remember that sinking feeling and fear when you are at a funeral or just in a cemetery? It’s actually far worse for the workers there than that is for you. I mean, imagine when they are handling the corpses, they must feel the worth of life. After all, it is a blessing as you only get to live once.

Now you see why it’s not so easy? If you still don’t believe it, we have some proof. A crematorium worker has shared some photos of the process. Oh, come on. Don’t be so insensitive. Check them out!

I worked for a crematorium for 4 years..learned a lot a about how precious life real is. Wanted to share for people curious.


WARNING: Some of these photos are quite disturbing. People who are sensitive to grotesque images should not view these.

The body would go into the machine and I would set the timer for 3hrs depending on the size of the person…naturally bigger people take longer as you need to burn the fat off first. This is done by catching the body on fire and turning the air circulation on in the hearth while shutting the machine down and letting the body burn naturally. If the body is not burned down to a normal size under 300lbs you run the risk of a out of control grease fire.

The aftermath.

Once the bones have been taken out of the machine(note the bones at this point are very brittle, the temperature used to cremate is around 1675 degrees..912.78 Celsius I think lol. They are checked for metal and what not. This is to make sure once the bones are ground no metal will mess up the machines. NOTE-the family has the right to ask for any metal/precious metals found back.

Spinal disks of a corpse.

He found a titanium femur bone while doing his checks for metal before the bones were ground up.

Here is the end-product of the hard work. This is finely ground powder of bones. And this goes into the urn which the family or the loved ones choose.

So how do you feel about life now?
