According to Steve Lindsey, Director of GA Board of Funeral Services, the reason for the license #CREM000039 issued to Colonial Cremation Services (Bill Head Funeral Home Inc dba)
Which previously was in the system under the Tucker address and now shows up in the system under the Lilburn address, contrary to the written statement in the letter below that they did not have a licensee at the Lilburn address was due to data entry error on the part of someone at the SOS.
The original application has not been produced to prove that it was in fact filled out correctly.
This does not explain away the fact that Bill Head has always kept the location of this stand alone Crematory from public awareness before now, and there is still a lot of questions surrounding the allowance of this Crematory in a densely populated residential area so close to a school. Unlike this current zoning issue, there was never any public hearing because Lilburn city officials did not notify the community in 1995 about this questionable land use, and no special use permit was required. There are dramatic differences between the Crematory in Lilburn and those in the industry following best practices. Complaints have been filed with both Lilburn zoning officials and the Funeral Board in Macon, asking that this Crematory be investigated to determine if everything has been operated correctly. Steve Lindsey has verbally stated that testing for toxins will be done there. CAN! has requested specific tests be done for mercury, cadmium, lead, dioxins, furans, and hydrogen chloride – not only at the Crematory but the surrounding area and school.
