The state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs on Friday released a list that includes names and dates of death for those whose remains were found at Buehler Funeral Home in Roseville. The funeral home was shut by the state in April.

The list is posted on the agency’s website. The funeral home operators pleaded guilty in a prepaid funeral fraud case.

The state is working with Roseville police to reach family members. They should contact Detective Mark Pratt at 586-447-4505 within 15 days.

Remains that are unclaimed by Nov. 4 will be buried at Cadillac Memorial Gardens East in Macomb County’s Clinton Township.
