Renville County Burial Assistance
In accordance with MN Statute §261.035, Renville County will provide for the immediate burial or direct cremation for residents of the county who are otherwise unable to pay the cost of disposition of their remains.

In the event that Renville County does pay for the necessary expenses of a funeral and final disposition, Anoka County shall have a claim against the person or the person’s estate to recover the costs expended for the funeral and final disposition.
Minn. Stat. §§ 261.04, 256.935, 524.3-805.
