  • The HANDBOOK ON DEATH REGISTRATION is linked above and should be studied and
    adhered to.

    CHURCH serves only as the owner of our various Green Cemeteries and
    serves as superintendent and administrators of the cemeteries and the
    administration of the environmental rules.

    It is the responsibility of the THE FUNERAL DIRECTOR or PERSON ACTING AS
    SUCH to insure that death registration and other regulations are
    followed according to statutes.

    If a licensed funeral home is not contracted to deliver the body, dig
    the grave by hand, or produce the death certificate and other
    formalities, then the family shall appoint the PERSON ACTING AS SUCH,
    which is usually a member of the family or administrator of the estate.

    The Universal Ethician Church will provide as much assistance as
    possible and will aid the family in contracting with independent grave
    diggers should the family decide to not dig the grave themselves.

    It is the responsibility of THE FUNERAL DIRECTOR or PERSON ACTING AS
    SUCH to provide THE UNIVERSAL ETHICIAN CHURCH with a copy of the death
    certificate or at a minimum the vital statistics including legal name,
    date of birth, date of death and date of burial for our Cemetery Records
