What To Do When A Death Occurs

If the person has died at home and the death was expected then you will need to call their normal doctor, when phoning a surgery out of hours a night service number is given for you to use. They will confirm that death has occurred. You should then contact us on our 24 hour telephone number and we will arrange to come to your home and take your loved one into care at our private Chapel of Rest.

If the person has died at a hospital, you will be advised by the Bereavement Services Department at the hospital. You should contact us as soon as possible. The sooner we know, the easier it will be for you to receive important support.

Unexpected Or Sudden Death

If the death was unexpected and the person has not been seen by a doctor within the previous fourteen days, the death will be referred to the Coroner. The Coroner will then investigate the cause of death.

If the death is referred to the Coroner you can still contact us for support as you are still able to make provisional funeral arrangements before the Coroner has come to a decision.

Registration Of A Death

The death must be registered within 5 working days from receipt of a doctors cause of death certificate unless it has been referred to the Coroner. You will need to make an appointment with the Registrar for the area in which the death occurred. You may contact us for advice if you are unsure and we can give you the telephone numbers of the Registrar's offices in our area.
