What to do when a death occurs:

When a death occurs in the family, whether it be at home or in hospital, there are many unfamiliar tasks which must be carried out. At such a time, when natural grief and anxiety weigh heavily upon you, you will need the care and advice of professional people. One of those with whom you will undoubtedly deal with is a funeral director.

AT HOME

Contact your doctor (or the doctor on call) who will issue a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death, which in time must be taken to the registrar. These days,
most families prefer that the Deceased is conveyed to the funeral directors’ chapel of rest as soon as possible. This can be arranged at any time of the day
or night by telephoning

AT A NURSING OR RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME

The above procedure is likely to have taken place with your permission by the senior in charge, a warden or matron, who will be able to advise you of the
whereabouts of the Notification of Death, which must be taken to the registrar.

IN HOSPITAL

The nursing staff or the administrative officer will advise you when and from where to collect the Notification of Death.
In all cases the Notification of Death must be taken to the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages for official records purposes.
