cremation form

cremation form

Any of the forms which are required by UK law to carry out the cremation of a deceased registered at the Office National Statistics.

In the working medical parlance, “crem forms” refer to those forms (Medical Form B—filled out by the doctor who attended the deceased before death—and Medical Form C—filled out by the doctor who confirmed the cause of death) which are filled out by doctors. Form A (Application for Cremation) must be completed by the next of kin or executor, and must be countersigned by a householder who knows the person completing the form. A fourth document, Notice of Cremation, gives notice of the cremation, details of the deceased and information about the service, and is a binding contract concerning the payment of fees to the cremation authority.

For cremation in Scotland, the certificate of registration of death issued by the registrar must be provided. In addition to the Application for Cremation and two cremation certificates signed by two doctors as above, a third crematorium certificate is required, signed by the medical referee at the crematorium.
