Bernalillo County to Honor Unclaimed and Indigent Residents with
Memorial Burial Ceremony

Bernalillo County – The county, in conjunction with Daniels Family Funeral Services, will honor Bernalillo County unclaimed and indigent residents with a public memorial burial ceremony later this month.

To find out if a deceased person is on the unclaimed/indigent list, go to and click on this year’s ceremony under ‘Memorial Lists’ or click on the Search Unclaimed Decedents tab.

To obtain the cremains of one of the deceased persons in the program, call (505) 468-7777 by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, 2018 for information and to make arrangements. There is a fee to cover the county’s cost of cremation.

The Bernalillo County General Services Division administers the Unclaimed/Indigent Cremation Program for deceased persons who have passed away within the geographical boundaries of Bernalillo County.

The county contracts with Daniels Family Funeral Services to cremate and store the cremains of unclaimed/indigent persons for two years and then the cremains are made available for burial.

The community memorial service will be held on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, 8:30 a.m. at Fairview Cemetery, 700 Yale SE. All are welcome to attend.

It is the mission of the Bernalillo County General Services Division to provide a deserved, lawful, proper and dignified manner of disposition for those decedent residents who are indigent or go unclaimed upon death, and to handle every case accurately and lawfully with the utmost attention. Bernalillo County respects each individual in the community and will treat all with maximum regard and dignity.

Have you ever been the victim of a crime, reported it to the Albuquerque Police Department (APD), and then never heard anything on it again? Would you like to know if APD pursued your case and/or apprehended the perpetrator? Here are some tips for following up on a reported crime in Albuquerque.

·       ALWAYS report any criminal activity or incident to APD. You can file a report online at:

·       If you are reporting a crime by telephone, ask to meet with an officer.

·       If you are reporting a property crime and don’t know any offender information, call the Telephone Reporting Unit at 768-2030.

·       If you’re reporting a crime and you DO know the perpetrator, call 242-COPS (242-2677)

·       Make a note of the case number once you have reported the crime and keep it handy for any future reference.

·       After three weeks from the date of your filing the report, contact any police substation with the case number and you will get a confirmation of who the case is assigned.

·       If the case has not been assigned, ask to speak to the Impact Supervisor to ensure they have received the report. Once you have the name of the detective assigned to the case, you can speak directly to the detective and monitor the outcome.
