What do you need to understand when arranging a cremation?

Cremation is a very final disposition of human remains.  For this reason, there is legislation governing how a cremation must be conducted.  Before a cremation can proceed, the legal next of kin must all sign a Cremation Authorization Form.  The coroner will issue a permit to cremate once all legal requirements are met.

What if the deceased is at the coroner’s office?

If your loved one is held at the morgue, you will still need the services of a licensed funeral professional.  As he or she will need to liaise with the coroner to obtain permits, the body can generally be released into the care of the funeral director at the same time that the Parish permits are issued.
