By on Jan 10, 2018 in Cremation |

Planning for A Cremation Service If you are arranging a cremation or doing pre-planning for your own cremation, you may want to know what kind of information and details you need. A local cremation or funeral home provider may help you get things right. A professional licensed as a funeral service provider knows the legal requirements and procedures that you even are not aware of. The provider may also suggest you better alternatives for the cremation procedures. For example, if you are arranging a cremation, you may want to decide whether you have direct cremation or the cremation comes after a funeral service. There are different options available, and it is important you discuss every step and option with other family members of the loved one. See that you discuss the final disposition of the loved one’s remains. The cremation remains may be entombed, buried, scattered, or kept at home. When planning for the cremation, you will need to contact a couple of funeral homes and see their price list and items they offer. Go with the one that suits your budget and cremation needs. A social security number, as well as details about the loved one, are needed when discussing things with the funeral home. Have the body transported from storage or site of death to the funeral home. You will need to get a death certificate and other paperwork. A medical certificate provided by a doctor is needed, and it states the cause of death. You will also need to sign the cremation authorization form. Look for a casket for the body and other items needed when cremating. When the cremation is done, you will need to dispose of the remains depending on the decision you make with other members of the family.
