If you've recently lost a loved one, let us begin by offering our condolences to you and your family. We hope we can help you through what can be a very difficult time.
Our service starts as soon as you make contact with us. Initially we will take some preliminary details, and if the deceased has died at home or in a nursing home we will arrange for their conveyance to our Chapel of Rest.
If the bereavement has taken place at home, you should inform your family doctor or a doctor from the deputising service who will attend to certify that death has occurred.
In cases where the death has been reported to a coroner, the coroner will issue the death certificate instead of a doctor. This will be sent directly to the Registrars Office in the district where the death occurred.
