Important Information Regarding Cremation

Since cremation is an absolute form of disposition there are particular rules and laws which need to be observed in order for cremations to go forward. Louisiana Law requires that the legal next of kin sign a Cremation Authorization form. 

Next of kin is as follows: Spouse, Majority of Adult Children, Majority of Adult Grandchildren, Surviving Parents, Majority of Surviving Siblings 

If the decedent has a Notarized Declaration stating their wishes to be cremated any person arranging the services can sign the Cremation Authorization form. 

Cremation services come with a wide variety of options and oftentimes, many questions. There are many Memorialization Options when considering cremation services.

One of the decisions to be make is what should be done with the cremated remains after the cremation and cremation service is complete. There are three basic options:

  • The Cremated Remains can be buried or interred in a cemetery.
  • The Cremated Remains can be scattered.
  • The Cremated Remains can be kept by the family members.
