Are there any laws governing cremation?
|Cremation regulations vary from state-to-state. |
In the State of Connecticut an investigator from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner must review the death certificate and sign an authorization allowing us to proceed with cremation. The fee for this service is $150 and is included in all of our cremation packages.
In the State of Massachusetts, state law currently prohibits funeral homes from owning crematories. This does not allow funeral homes in the State of Massachusetts the ability to ensure the integrity of the entire process since all deceased persons must leave their care and be transported to an off-site crematory.
