Legal Requirements

We can handle the cremation of those who have passed away anywhere, and we are very familiar with the legal requirements of different jurisdictions.

Each state, and even each county in some instances, can have its own variation on regulations governing the cremation process. A 12-hour waiting period is common before a cremation may occur; and in addition, the death certificate must be signed by both a physician and a licensed funeral director in order to proceed.

We are regulated and licensed by the Maryland Board of Morticians. We also abide by the strictest industry regulations and practices to ensure safe and ethical procedures for the families we serve. Our rules stipulate the handling of cremated remains in such a way as to assure the cremated remains you receive are exactly, and only, the remains of your loved one.
