“In certain circumstances, it is necessary to notify local police of a death. Has the person been under a physician’s care?”

Are you the next of kin?

Virginia law requires that a funeral provider must inquire about the wishes of the next of kin. Is next of kin available?

If next of kin is not available, do you have a notarized Designee Agreement appointing you to handle funeral arrangements?

Under Virginia law, it is necessary to make a good faith effort to notify the next of kin. If no next of kin is available, friends or other persons may assume financial obligations of the funeral arrangements.
