Cremation Recycling has been a trusted precious metal refiner for over three decades, and our roots go back even further. Our company grew out of the Simmons Refining Co., which began earning its reputation as an accurate and trusted refiner in the late 1960s. When we opened our doors in 1982, we did so with many of Simmons’ core employees, who brought with them an unmatched level of integrity and expertise.

Today, the legacy continues. Our trading manager is an original Simmons employee, and our head chemist earned a master’s degree in chemical engineering and offers 40-plus years in the industry. Our turnover is virtually nonexistent, and many of our employees bring the knowledge and expertise that can only come from decades of commitment to our highly specialized field.

Our unique open-door policy, which allows customers to personally monitor our weigh-in, documenting, melting, and testing procedures, offers the peace of mind they won’t find just anywhere. And we’re easy and convenient to work with. We can arrange pick-up from your crematory, and we cover all shipping and insurance costs.

We believe that every funeral matters. Missing a funeral is upsetting and can cause distress during a difficult time. Not being emotionally present during the service can impair the grieving process. In one hour, we can capture a lifetime. Funeral professionals should strive to capture the service and make it available to the family digitally to remove the barriers that keep people apart and support their healing journey.
OneRoom is an online funeral viewing solution, designed specifically for the funeral profession and actively managed to operate reliably without involvement of funeral home staff. Our system enables funeral homes to reliably and discretely share the service live and record it for family to watch and appreciate again, once emotions settle. These important occasions are privately and securely stored to help sustain memories of their loved ones. OneRoom systems and staff monitor services around the clock to support online guests, families and Funeral Directors.

OneRoom operates in four countries and over 10 years has helped 600+ funeral homes share 1M+ services and reach millions of people globally.
