Deceased Out of State

Should a death occur away from the deceased’s home state and a funeral service is desired to be held in the home city, then transportation will need to be arranged. If the body is to be transported via a commercial carrier, then the remains must be either embalmed prior to shipping or shipped in an airtight container. We, the funeral home, may be able to arrange for transport via a hearse; however this option is quite expensive. An alternative choice and the most economical would be to cremate the remains in the distant city and have the cremated remains shipped to the home city where you can hold desired services.

If cremating a loved one and returning with their ashes by plane please check airline and security guidelines in regards to carrying cremated remains in certain types of containers prior to going to the airport.
