Following a bereavement there are many decisions and arrangements to be made at a time of personal distress. Below are some of the most common questions people have. However, you are also likely to have other questions which we will be happy answer.
When a death occurs in a General Hospital
Following a death in a general hospital, you will need to make an appointment at the Patients Affairs Office or Bereavement Office to collect the Death Certificate and any personal effects of the deceased. The certificate will normally be available within 2 days, although sometimes a little longer if the person passed away at the weekend.
When the necessary paperwork has been completed, it will be the funeral director’s primary responsibility to take your loved one into our care and prepare for the funeral.
