The California Department of Consumer Affairs website (www.cfb.ca.gov) makes available a Consumer Guide to Funeral and Cemetery Purchases, which includes the following information  relating to the use of a funeral director and home death care:

Home Death Care

The use of a funeral establishment and funeral director is not required by law when preparing a body for disposition. You can arrange for your body, or that of a loved one, to be cared for and prepared for disposition by family and friends at home. If you choose home death care, you must:

  • File a properly completed Certificate of Death, signed by the attending physician or coroner, with the local registrar of births and deaths.

  • Obtain a Permit for Disposition from the local registrar of births and deaths.

  • Provide a casket or other suitable container.

  • Make arrangements directly with the cemetery or crematory.

Your local county health department may be able to help you file a Certificate of Death and/or a Permit for Disposition.

(NOTE: Human remains may be kept at home without embalming or refrigeration until disposition. Generally, decomposition will proceed more rapidly without refrigeration or embalming.)

Pick up the body and transport it to Utah? 

All you do is acquire the Death certificate and the burial transit permit and you are on your way.
