- Patients in a licensed nursing home (not resting home)

- Persons who die in another state and that state have given written authorization for a cremation
- Persons who die in another state and whose death would not have required ME authorization for cremation had the death occurred in North Carolina
By selecting “Yes” you acknowledge that the use of a medical examiner is required, and agree to pay the $50 fee. If you are unsure, please select “I don’t know” and continue planning online. One of our knowledgeable staff members will follow up with you to confirm, but please note that you may be required to pay the $50 fee if a Medical Examiner Certification is required.
This is an optional service. Families can obtain a certified death certificate directly from the county health department alternatively. We will obtain certified copies of the death certificate from the health department, where they can be picked up at our funeral home location.
We will mail your Certified Death Certificates directly to you.
