I'm slightly confused

How the whole funeral planning thing goes...so bare with me.

My dh's uncle can die any day now...they need 12k to bury him, but they needed grandpa's signiture to bury uncle next to grandma (that's question one...why would they need his signiture unless it was to use grandpa's plot?)

Now they need the uncles exs signiture for something...they weren't married but have 2 kids...we don't have common law here so it wouldn't be that issu...why would they need her signature? For the kids or what?

I am so confused as to why they need these signatures for really no reason....can anyone help me out here?

Sounds like they have a family plot prepared? No?

No they just had 2 spots, grandma and one for grandpa when he passes.

And yes I read the post. You're questioning it, but that's what it sounds like.

Yes. The only reason I can think of a need for the signatures is for cremation....

Ummm I've got nothing! I know when my mom passed I signed papers but I think that was to release her body.

Well is guess they're burying him in grandpas spot possibly? If there isn't a cremation and no prior lot I don't see why it would be that costly and require that many signatures.

it wouldnt be 12k to bury him in an already purchased plot which is why im so confused. a coffin and the service would only be about 8k if the plot was already paid for

Odds are they are using Grandpa's plot to bury your uncle.  In some places they can do a double depth plot so they may be doing that.

As for the exes signature...I have no idea why they would need that.  Unless she was still on one of his bank accounts.  She would need to sign off to get off the account and his power of attorney to get on it.
