Frequently Asked Questions

We hope the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ below will help with some of your concerns.  In addition, we have provided a list of many, but not necessarily all of the funeral homes in and around the Sacramento region.  LECS is providing this information as a courtesy and convenience for you, and therefore, we do not “recommend” or “endorse” any one funeral; provider, over another, from the alphabetically list below:

Typically, it is the legal next of kin (spouse, parent, adult child, etc.) or someone who has been appointed in a healthcare directive or durable power of attorney. 

Funeral homes will typically use their own staff, or an outside provider, to pick up the deceased from the coroner’s office, home, hospital, or care center. 

They will go to the funeral home of your choice or a storage facility until a funeral home has been chosen.

Sometimes. It depends on the circumstances if their death.  If their death was the result of a crime, such as a homicide, their body becomes a part of the crime scene, and you may not be allowed by law enforcement to see of touch them until they have been released by the coroner’s office to the funeral home of your choice.  Then, depending upon the condition of the body, you will have the option of viewing them or not.

As noted above, body preparation takes place at a mortuary or funeral home.  A cemetery is the final resting place of the deceased that is buried, or cremated remains that are placed in a niche or cremation garden.

No. There are many funeral homes on the same property as a cemetery; however, you are not obligated to use both. If a funeral home or mortuary does not have a cemetery on their property, they will transport the deceased to any cemetery you choose for the burial.

Some are but many are not.  Call or check the website for the funeral home you wish to use to find out.  Even if they are closed, they may have a funeral director who is on-call and can call you back

This process can take several days as a death certificate and burial permit is required and must be obtained from the county.  County offices are not open on weekends or holidays, which is why it could be several days before a burial could take place. 

No, a death certificate and a cremation permit must first be issued by the county.  Next, authorization and contracts would need to be signed.  The cremation itself could then take 3-5 days if you use a firm that owns their own cemetery. If they do not own it, cremation could take up to 2-3 weeks.

No. First, you must obtain a permit from the county (about $12) and there are rules as to specific places where you can and cannot scatter the remains.  A funeral home can best answer this question for you.

Possibly. If you are determined to be the only legal next of kin, yes. If not, all parties who are equally considered next of kin typically must agree on disposition (cremation or burial) of the deceased.

Sometimes. There are certain requirements and not all deceased persons are a candidate for body donation.

Not necessarily. There are many choices and most funeral homes can work with whatever budget you have.

There are some victim’s rights groups that can help with funeral expenses based on how the death occurred. Or the deceased can become a “Public Administrator’s case,” which means they will be cremated and buried in a common grave by the County of Sacramento.

Not very likely. It depends on the circumstances and every funeral home is different so don’t hesitate to ask. There may be a third party that will ultimately pay these expenses if the deceased had life, funeral, auto or homeowner’s insurance.

Sometimes.  This depends on the circumstances of the death, family financial situations, etc.  If the death was a child under the age of 18, often funeral homes have special discounts.  Some funeral homes have the discretion of giving a free funeral from time to time, but this varies from funeral home to funeral home.  It can never hurt to ask. 

Typically, yes as most funeral homes are familiar with different faith traditions and beliefs but be sure to ask specifically if they have had previous experience with culture or faith.

Embalming is a process which provides preservation of the body that allows families to have an open-casket, public viewing. It is not required by law but most funeral homes will require it if a public visitation is planned.

If so, they may be eligible to be buried in the National Cemetery in Dixon, California at no charge. Find their discharge papers (DD-214) then ask the funeral home to research it for you.

First, and autopsy may be required if the death occurred in the commission of a crime such as homicide or DUI. Other circumstances will vary as to whether an autopsy takes place. Be prepared that sometimes, following an autopsy, there can be difficulty making the deceased presentable for viewing. Ask the funeral home if they can make the needed adjustments following an autopsy to make the body available for viewing if that is your wish.
