Bereavement

If a death occurs at home: Telephone the doctor or ring 999 if the death was unexpected. The doctor may visit to confirm the death. Contact a funeral director. Collect the death certificate from the surgery and take this to the Registrar of Deaths. We can advise you of their location. Take the green form (issued by the Registrar) to the funeral director who will make all the necessary arrangements.

If death occurs in hospital: Contact the funeral directors to inform them. Collect the death certificate from the hospital. Take this to the Registrar of Deaths. Take the green form (issued by the Registrar) to the funeral director who will make all the necessary arrangements.
