The future of a Carlisle crematory that had its license revoked earlier this month will be announced next week, this news outlet has just learned from state officials.

Here’s what we know now:

1. State board’s decision expected Wednesday

Representatives from the Crematory Review Board met with William Liston, owner of Premium Mortuary Services, last week.

The results of that hearing will be announced Wednesday at the next Ohio Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors meeting in Columbus, according to Jon Rettig, president of the board.

2. Crematory’s license still revoked

The Carlisle crematory had its license revoked earlier this month by the Ohio Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors after it found 15 violations, including that the business failed to keep seven deceased human bodies, not yet embalmed, inside a working refrigerator.

3. Family takes legal action

At least one family whose loved one was at the crematory has said Premium Mortuary Services should permanently lose its license.
