What You Need to Know

When a loved one passes away, it is an understandably difficult time. It can be even more stressful trying to remember all of the details that must be addressed. If you are in charge of handling the affairs of the decedent (the person who passed away), it can be difficult to find the answers to all your questions.

The staff of the Heritage Cremation Society will perform many of these tasks while others will be the responsibility of the family or other designated party. In the links below we’ve tried to provide some helpful information and explain the steps that often need to be taken following a death.
