A man signs a will.When planning your end of life wishes, please remember this fact, your friends can not legally sign to have your cremation performed. In the state of Pennsylvania, only a blood relative can sign the documents for cremation. In lieu of a blood relative signing a cremation authorization form, the only other option is a casketed burial (traditional or graveside service). This can be eliminated by having a pre-arrangement conference with you signing your own cremation form and having your wishes documented. If having a last will and testament drawn up, please remember that the statement (for your final services directive) must read as follows…”I hereby give the authority to (insert name of the person chosen) for signature and rights to have my cremation performed and take possession of my cremated remains”. These are the only ways to ensure that your wishes will be followed out.
