A death certificate in Los Angeles is obtained from the registrar for a fee of $14.00.  Your cremation provider will usually do this as part of their professional service.

Additional copies of the death certificate can be obtained from the local Office of Vital Records at 12400 Imperial Highway, Room 1002, Norwalk, CA 90650.

Cremation permits can vary by county. In Los Angeles County, the permit fee is $11.00. The state of California cremation registration fee charged by the Cemetery and Funeral Bureau for every cremation is $8.50.

What if the deceased is in Los Angeles County Morgue?

If the coroner has collected the body from the place of death, you will need to pay the transportation fee.  These fees vary depending on which county you are in.  This fee can significantly add to your overall basic cremation cost, so you must be aware of this. Your funeral director will need to pay this fee to collect the body from the coroner’s facility.  These fees are:

Los Angeles County $200 – Riverside County $320 – San Bernardino County $250  -Orange County $318 – Ventura County CALL

Before a cremation can be performed, the authorizing agent, or next of kin, must complete a ‘Declaration for Disposition of Cremated Remains form’.

Your cremation provider will help you do this, or you can download the form at the California Department of Consumer Affairs, Cemetery, and Funeral Bureau.

I have been researching and writing about the death care industry for the last ten years. End of life services and experiences are something most of us choose not to reflect upon until we are suddenly faced with dealing with it. I have been contributing comprehensive and independent resources for families that explain how the funeral industry operates, and the laws that govern funeral practices. Sara writes for US Funerals Online and DFS Memorials LLC, as well as contributing to other forums and publications for the death care industry. I have a BA in Cultural Studies. This helps my analysis of cultural death care rituals, alongside a career background in Business Management. The death care industry is undergoing an epoch of change and this fascinates me.
