Cremation & Aquamation Tags

Whether your funeral home performs cremation or aquamation, for pets or humans, we can help with your custom Cremation Tags!

Why Do We Need Crematory ID Tags?

The Cremation Association of North America (CANA) recommends that a stainless steel crematory tag (cremation ID disc) stays with the remains throughout the entire process. The serial number on the tag should be assigned when the deceased is first checked in. Identification should be confirmed before cremation, and then the tag will go into the cremation chamber with the remains. The ID tag should then be checked again after the process is complete and go with the remains into an urn. This is the best way to prevent any mix-ups and ensure 100% traceability.

Ordering Identification Tags / Disks with NB&T:

304 Stainless Steel is the best material option for Cremation Tags. It is a durable material that can withstand the heat of the crematorium without melting.

We offer an easy online ordering system for our most popular sizes in stainless steel, Style #85 (1″ circle), Style #137 (1-1/4″ circle), Style #81 (1-1/2″) and Style #92 (1-5/8″). If you would like a different shape or material, use this order form.

The most popular layout is the company name and serial number. We can add additional information, but the more text you add, the smaller it becomes.

Specialty Tags

Picture 1: This is an example of an aluminum tag. While aluminum is a more economical choice compared to stainless steel, it cannot go into the cremation chamber.

Pictures 2 and 3: These two pictures are examples of our stamped custom logos on stainless steel tags. This is an additional charge, contact us for a quote.

Picture 4: This is a laser etched tag with a logo. Laser etched tags cannot go into the crematorium, only stamped tags can. Laser etched tags make a great promotional item that can be tied around the urn. Contact us for a quote.
