MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A chain of funeral homes in Metro Milwaukee has been suspended for 25 days.
The state said Church and Chapel cremated almost 275 individuals from January through April 25th, even though its license had expired. The company also cremated human remains in May without proper documentation.
The Department of Regulation and Licensing said Church and Chapel has agreed to the suspension. When it’s over, they’ll have to provide quarterly reports to the state which list the company’s daily cremations, to make sure they’re following the state’s rules.
