The Chester County Coroner’s Office is planning to inter the unclaimed cremains of the following 28 individuals in the near future. Unclaimed cremains of non-veterans are interred every two years in a crypt donated to Chester County in 2018 by Philadelphia Memorial Park, Frazer, PA. A memorial ceremony for the first interment took place November 8, 2018. Due to current gathering restrictions, a ceremony will not be held this year.

All cremains have been retained by the Coroner’s Office for at least one year. The names of decedents to be interred are provided as a final notification to any next of kin (closest living relative). If you are the next of kin or an interested party who would like to claim someone’s cremains, please call the office at 610-344-6165.
