Cremation Views

Views are performed Monday through Friday during normal business hours.

To schedule a cremation view, please call (262) 741-4729. If your funeral home is located outside of Walworth County, the decedent will need to be brought to our office for viewing; we will coordinate a time to meet your staff at our office in Elkhorn.

Once a view has been completed and the death certificate is signed, please:

  • Print the Cremation Release form from the State Vital Records system
  • Fill in the portions of the form that do not pre-populate (name of informant and name of the crematory)
  • Fax or email the form to (262) 741-4487 or

We will review the form and send it back to you as soon as possible.
