Confirmation of Identification 

 

Laws recently passed by the State of Ohio require the authorizing agent or the agent’s representative to visually identify the decedent’s remains or a photograph or other visual image of the decedent prior to cremation. If identification is by photograph or other visual image, the authorizing agent or their representative is required to sign the photograph or other visual image. If visual identification is not feasible, other positive identification of the decedent may be used including, but not limited to, reliance upon identification made through the coroner’s office.

Our first call staff will place an identity band on the wrist or ankle of the deceased at the hospital, care center, residence or coroner’s office. This band will serve to confirm the proper identity of the deceased and will remain with them throughout the process. There is no additional cost if the authorizing party makes the confirmation of identification at the time our staff transfer the deceased from the place of death. In order to meet this requirement we must obtain the signature of the authorizing party at the time of transfer confirming the identity of the deceased.
