Reasonable Attempt to Notify Forms
If you are not able to locate the natural Authorizing Agent and you have made reasonable efforts to try and track them down, you may become the Authorizing Agent yourself, depending upon your relationship with the deceased.

Download the attached form, complete it, and email it to us at [email protected] at the time you are ordering your direct cremation if you believe you qualify.
