Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

If you are the person who is the attorney appointed under the enduring power of attorney document, you do not need to show the document to the family, although it is regarded as good practice to consult the family when you are making decisions. However a decision about cremation instead of burial, is a decision that is the responsibility of the executor under the will. If you were also the executor, then you can change the method of disposal of the body if you had a verbal direction. Please let me know if you still want to have a telephone call
