Authorization to Identify Remains by Photograph

When a loved one dies with no local family members, it is sometimes necessary for identification to be completed remotely. In cases such as cremation, identification is essential to the integrity of the process. This form is used to authorize identification of a loved one via photograph.

Authorization to Embalm

In addition to verbal authorization on the phone, we are required to obtain written authorization for the embalming process. This form is used to verify this permission to embalm and is kept in your loved one's funeral record.

Biographical Worksheet

This form is helpful in gathering much of the important biographical data that is needed to file a death certificate with the state and compose obituary notices.

Authorization for Minimum Care Services

We believe strongly in the value of caring for and respecting the dead. When embalming is not selected (such as in the case of simple cremation) we still strive to care for the remains of your loved one in the best way possible. This form explains certain minimum care services that you may authorize us to complete, even when embalming is not chosen. If you have any questions about these services, let us know before you complete the form and we will be happy to tell you more.
