Our Services offered at Aftercare Cremation
Please accept our deepest sympathies for your loss. When you experience the death of a loved one, there are dozens of details to take care of. It is our goal to make this as simple and easy as possible.
We can meet with you at our office conveniently located in Mission Hills by appointment only or offer you the flexibility to take care of matters over the phone, by fax and mail. You will speak with a knowledgeable Funeral Director in order to complete all the arrangements needed for either a simple cremation or a direct burial.
CREMATION AND FINAL DISPOSITION
After we have received your loved one, we must complete the Death Certificate, have it signed by the attending Physician/Medical Examiner, and then file it with the County where the death occurred. Once the Death Certificate has been filed and the permit has been received, the cremation can then take place.
Cremation is usually complete within seven to fourteen working days. Your loved ones cremated remains will come from our crematory in a basic plastic container also referred to as a basic urn, which is suitable for transporting or final disposition. This basic urn will then be mailed to the address you provide us in the arrangement forms. We have additional urns available to purchase for holding or interring your loved one's cremated remains.
You will be asked about the number of certified copies of the Death Certificate you will need in order to handle all of your loved ones final affairs. The cost for certified copies of a death certificate are $21.00 each. You will need a copy of the Death Certificate for legal proof of death, for claiming life insurance benefits, for most financial institutions and/or for transferring title to a property. You many also order additional copies in the future should the need arise.
