Below are the relevant legal forms. Please complete and sign these forms after you have arranged the cremation, then return them to us at Spring Grove Cremation Society as soon as possible. Without them, we cannot carry out the cremation.

Appointment of Representative (Before Need)
In Ohio, the deceased’s legal next-of-kin has the right to make the funeral arrangements.

This form must be notarized.
