Excerpt from the Cremation Answer Book
What documents and signatures are needed?
A death certificate is required by law, and is completed by Trident Society with the necessary information provided by the family. Permits for cremation cannot be obtained until the medical authorities provide these signatures.
This certificate will be delivered to the physician and medical examiner for the listing of the official cause of death and the required legal signatures.
Realize that cremation service providers have no control over the length of time necessary for these signatures to be obtained. Autopsies and medical records may delay signatures by physicians and medical examiners.
