The form below is called a cremation order, or permission for cremation to take place.

It must be signed by the deceased legal next of kin. If you are not sure who the legal next of kin is  please contact the funeral home at 617-876-8964 and discuss this matter with one of our funeral directors.

Failure to obtain the proper signatures may result in the delay of funeral services and customs.

It is very important to remember that power of attorney and healthcare proxy ends at the time of death, so unless the POA and Healthcare proxy are also the legal next of kin, their signatures are not valid.
