Can more than one body be cremated at a time?

No, each cremation is carried out separately. The aperture through which the coffin passes into the cremator and the cremation chamber are of dimensions that will only safely accept one coffin. However, exceptions can be made in the case of a mother and her baby or small twin children, so long as the next of kin or executor has made this specific request. Most crematoria will allow public inspection of the "behind the scenes" procedures in an attempt to enlighten the public on all aspects of the cremation process.
