The cremation regulations are still quite complicated and it is wisest to approach a funeral director immediately death occurs and advise him that you desire to arrange for a cremation. Discuss with him how soon you wish the cremation to take place and whom you wish to officiate at the service, also the form of service. The funeral director will then do all that is needed to produce the necessary statutory Forms for the cremation. You will need to sign the statutory Form ‘A’ if you are the executor or the next of kin or are authorised by either to do so. The death will have to be registered and you will be advised how to do this.
