Exhumation of human remains may be required for a number of reasons, such as further forensic investigation, moving to another burial ground or to be cremated and return ashes to family.

For Exhumation to proceed, an application to the Department of Human Services for an exhumation license must be made.

The deceased’s next of kin / applicant, owner of the grave and the Cemetery Trust also must give permission for the Exhumation license to be approved. This process can take an extended period of time; we at Templeton family funerals will professionally guide the family and prepare the documents as required.
