What do I do when a death occurs?

  1. A call to National Cremation Service (818) 658-2421 is all that is needed to start the complete process, from anywhere in the world.
  2. We dispatch our professionally trained and compassionate personnel to transport the deceased from place of death to our licensed climate controlled care center.
  3. Families are contacted as quickly as possible after a death and information is gathered to initiate and coordinate the cremation.
  4. Cremation/disposition permit and family cremation authorizations must be completed according to California State Law before cremation can take place. These documents are usually completed in 3-7 business days.
  5. Once our staff has received the necessary authorizations and documents have been properly signed, the cremation will take place.
  6. The cremated remains are picked up by our office and transferred into the urn or keepsakes selected by the family if not placed in the urn at the crematory. The cremation arranger will discuss with the family a time to release the urn. If shipping or delivery is requested, allow 1 -2 additional days.

We will set an appointment for the family to come to the office for completion of the documentation. If preferred we can complete all necessary paperwork via fax or email. If completed in this manner, notarization would be required for several documents.
