If A Death Has Occurred

Above you find a basic overview of your options in general circumstances.  Each family has specific needs, and we will be happy to assist you through the process. If you would like further information, please feel free to call us at (904) 683-5427, or you may reach us via email at info@affordablecremationsolutions.com.  We are here to help and to serve you and will be happy to answer any questions that you might have.

Anticipated death at home

Today, more people with terminal illnesses are more comfortable at home under the care of Hospice in the final stages of their illness.  In this situation, you should inform Hospice that Affordable Cremation Solutions will be taking care of final arrangements.  Hospice will then supervise the necessary legal requirements. Often, when someone is faced with a terminal illness, the family will decide to make arrangements in advance, saving them the time and emotional distress of multitudes of decisions that must be made at the time of death. 

Death out-of-state

If the death occurs out of state, you should call us (904) 683-5427. We can then coordinate the transfer with a local funeral director at the place of death.  We can often save families money by making all necessary arrangements.

Steps To Take

Many people are unsure what steps to take when a death occurs.  At Affordable Cremation Solutions, we are committed to ensuring that the families we serve are well-informed of all their options.  The necessary steps usually depend on the location and circumstances.  It is important that you understand what can be done; and we want to make sure that you have the necessary information required to make these important decisions.  Here are some brief guidelines:​

Unanticipated death at home or elsewhere

In these situations, you should immediately contact 911.  Police and emergency medical personnel will then determine the appropriate steps to take.  Generally, the authorities can release the remains directly to our establishment so that preparations and authorizations may begin.  In some situations, however, the remains may need to be taken to the Medical Examiner’s office; this occurs when the cause of death may not yet be known.

If death occurs in an Institution

Should the death occur at a hospital or care home (nursing/convalescent), the medical staff should handle all necessary legal steps.  You simply need to inform the staff that Affordable Cremation Solutions is handling the arrangements.  It is also helpful to provide them with our 24 hour number (904) 683-5427.
