At Lechner Funeral Home, we encourage you to prearrange and prepay for your funeral. You can acquire a cemetery plot or express where you would like your ashes to be scattered. However, you cannot sign the final authorization for disposition yourself.
New Jersey, as well as other states, has what is called the Right to Control Law (N.J.S.A. 45:27-22). The law, absent what is called a “funeral agent designation” in a Will, outlines a next-of-kin hierarchy depicting who has the right to control the funeral and disposition of a deceased person. The person with the right to control is not necessarily the executor of the Will.
We are available in your time of need. Contact our staff at any hour, at (609) 654-2298.
