If a Death has Occurred
Do not try to notify the Cremation Center of a death by e-mail. Please notify us by phone at 913-384-5566. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day. Listed below are some guidelines to use when a death has occurred.
If death occurs at a hospital, nursing home, or other institution, simply instruct that facility to notify us. We will come over at the appropriate time and bring your loved one back to our facility.
If the death occurs at home and the deceased is under hospice care, call the hospice provider and they will call the Cremation Center at the appropriate time. In cases of sudden death, unattended death, or when someone is found dead, you must call 911. Once the coroner has released the decedent, the police will call the Cremation Center for you.
Someone will contact you to set up an appointment during our business hours to arrange for the cremation. Our business hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are closed for arrangements on weekends and some holidays, but are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to your need for services.
