Death Certificate & Cremation Permit
Senior Vice-President
Senior Vice-President

W hen death occurs, we go to the place of death and bring your loved one into our care.(Immediately)

We prepare the death certificate and deliver it to the doctor's office for certification and signature. (24-48 hours)

Once the doctor has completed his/her portion of the death certificate, they call us to pick it up. (1-4 days)

We retrieve the death certificate and take it to the appropriate vital statistics office to file it. At the same time, the vital statistics office issues the cremation permit. (1 day)

Once we have the cremation permit, we submit it to the crematory,and the cremation is scheduled for the following day. (1 day)

When the cremation is complete, we receive the cremated remains
back the next day. (1 day)


In summary, the entire process takes about 1 week to complete, depending on how long the doctor takes to sign the death certificate.
Please note that the vital statistics offices and most doctors' offices
are closed on weekends and most holidays.
Please also note that, by Texas state law, we must wait at least 48
hours from the time of death before the cremation can take place.
