How To Apply For A Cremation

The executor, near relative or person authorised to act in that capacity must send a Cremation Application form – sometimes called Form 1 in England and Wales and Form A in Scotland – to the cremation authority in order to receive authorisation to cremate the remains of the deceased person.

The cremation service can be religious or non-religious, or you may choose to have no service at all. Any service that takes place must be carried out within the time allowed for each funeral and not impact on the funeral before or after.
