Indigent Burial

Indigent Burial

All deceased persons shall be afforded a dignified burial commensurate with their pre-need arrangements and /or ability to pay. When the responsibility for disposition becomes the duty of the County of Imperial, the decedent's evidenced intent is to take priority. The Imperial County Indigent Burial program has been designed to help families who, at this difficult time are financially unable to pay for a funeral. Upon approval, applicants are limited to direct burial or direct cremation. The County does not supplement funds already available to the family or decedent for funeral arrangements.
