The Burial / Cremation Program is operated in cooperation with local area funeral homes and the Office of the Medical Examiner.
The county provides services for persons who died in Oklahoma County and whose bodies are unclaimed, or for whom no funds are available. Referrals for this program must come from a funeral home in Oklahoma County or from the Office of the Medical Examiner. Due to budgetary constraints, cremations are provided in most cases. Burial services are provided only under certain extenuating circumstances.
