If a death has occurred or may happen soon:

At Home:

When a death occurs at home and the deceased is not in hospice care, call 911 to let them know of the death. Emergency personnel will respond and will contact the coroner for instruction on how to proceed. The coroner makes the decision to take the deceased into their care or release the deceased to the care of a crematory or funeral home.

At a Hospice or Care Facility:

When a death occurs at a hospice or care facility, their staff will notify the funeral home or cremation provider of the death. Once your loved one is released by the facility, they will be placed into our care. Use our Care Center Form to ensure our care facility has all the information they need ahead of time.

When My Mom passed I had not pre-planned much. I called Jessica oddly a day before to inquire about their services. She was very kind and explained the process. Mom died the following day. more suddenly then we anticipated. Jessica walked me through the process. Kirk from Bauie cam to my mom that day. He was also very caring and kind . He treated My mom with dignity and respect. Jessica was amazing and very caring every step in this process. I am very glad we chose The Cremation Society of Missouri for m,y Mom. I would highly; recommend them to anyone seeking cremation.
