How Long Does Cremation Take?
Many providers tell families that it will be a minimum of 15 days prior to receiving their loved one’s cremated remains back into their care.
While every family we serve is different, we do average a three to five-day turnaround of cremated remains. Delays may occur when death occurs on a weekend or holiday and the primary care physician’s office is not available to receive the death certificate for signature.
