  Request for a Cremation View

Complete a Cremation View Request Form

Funeral homes located north of I-94 in Milwaukee County will be visited for viewings Monday, Wednesday and Friday, if the request is received before 8 a.m. on that day. Funeral homes located south of I-94 in Milwaukee County will be visited for viewing Tuesday and Thursday, if the request is received before 8 a.m. on that day. Requests received after 8 a.m. will be viewed on the next scheduled viewing day.

*If your funeral home is located outside of Milwaukee County, the body has to be brought to the Medical Examiner’s Office for the viewing.

If a funeral home plans on bringing a body to the Medical Examiner’s Office for a cremation view, they are required to call in advance to notify the investigative staff before their arrival. This applies to all funeral homes. Funeral homes are also required to provide basic information about the deceased at that time of the notification call, OR the Cremation Request form can still be faxed, but please verify by calling the office that the investigative staff received the request prior to arrival.

Permits are issued before 10 a.m. daily if all the required paperwork has been submitted before that time.

All bodies MUST be labeled with some form of identification prior to viewing, or viewing will be denied and the permit will be delayed.
