What to do when a death has occurred

Contact the doctor, hospice nurse or police if necessary.

Have the nurse, police officer, hospital, nursing home or medical examiner contact Millennium Crematory at 772-999-5547, 24 hours a day.

When we receive the call we will ask these questions:

  • Date and time of death.

  • The name and phone number of the doctor who will be certifying the death certificate.

Once we are notified, we will dispatch our personnel to bring your loved one into our care, 24 hours a day.

We will contact the next of kin listed on the information provided to set an appointment time for you to come to our office (we can meet with you at your residence if you desire) to complete the cremation arrangements. If you are unable to meet with us in person we can guide you through our simple online arrangement system.

Recent Reviews

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
