When after a death can cremation take place?
Because cremation is an irreversible process and because the process itself will eliminate any ability to determine exact cause of death, The State of Ohio requires the following steps before the cremation is authorized. In Ohio, 24 hours must lapse. In addition, all necessary legal authorizations and documentations must be processed and filed prior to cremation. This requires the co-operation of the authorizing agent (next-of-kin) providing information and signatures. Then contacting the appropriate physician or coroner to complete the medical portion of the certificate and local health department to accept the death certificate. Once the death certificate is accepted a cremation permit is issued. Once permit is received, families can expect the process to range from 7 - 10 business days or longer if the signing physician is unavailable to complete the certificate. As required by law, the deceased remains in refrigeration until the cremation is performed.
