How Do You Arrange for a Cremation?
Whether you are pre-planning or making arrangements after you have lost a loved one, there are certain steps you’ll want to take in making arrangements for cremation planning. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it may be helpful to have friends or family take on some of these steps to make it easier.
3 Steps for preparations
Going through the process
Contact Funeral Home
The first thing you’ll want to do is call our local funeral homes or services in your area. You’ll want to make them aware that you or a loved one plan to cremate as part of their funeral service. (928) 768-7387
If you are planning for a deceased loved one according to their will and testament, you’ll want to go over pricing with the funeral director and compare it to other funeral homes or online services.
Preparing Transport & Medical Certificate
After you have secured a service provider for the cremation, you’ll need to set up transportation. The funeral home or service provider will often help arrange to obtain transportation, the death certificate, ensure obituary publication, and take care of other necessary paperwork.
The next step you’ll want to handle is obtaining the medical certificate from the doctor, which explains the cause of death. In some cases, you may need to obtain the coroner’s report for post mortem examination.
Authorization Paperwork for Cremation
After that, you’ll want to sign and authorize forms for the cremation of the deceased individual. There is a lot of paperwork involved with cremation, so you may want to go over the fine print with your funeral director or service provider.
In the event you are pre-planning for yourself, you can sign and authorize the cremation form yourself.
