Cremation & Funeral Process: Funeral Documentation

What Documentation Is Required When Arranging a Funeral?

When arranging a funeral, a variety of funeral documentation is required. Most of the documents will be taken care of by the funeral director. They will register the death with the registrar at the local city hall as well as handle the required paperwork with the coroner.

In the case of cremations, certain forms must be completed in order to apply for authorization from the coroner and crematorium. The funeral home will ensure that these documents are completed.
