What To Do In Time Of Bereavement

When someone has died, it is often hard to know what to do. We are available for advice and support but there are certain practical steps you might like to know about.

If Someone Dies At Home

These are the things you will have to do:

1) Telephone the doctor. They will visit you to confirm death has taken place and tell you how to obtain the death certificate.

2) Contact the funeral director.

If Someone Dies In Hospital

These are the things you will have to do:

1) Contact the funeral director to let them know that their services will be required.

2) Collect the doctor’s death certificate from hospital.

In All Cases Of Death

1) Take certificate to registrar’s office for the area in which death took place. Also take the deceased’s medical card, if available, and birth certificate. The registrar will issue you with a green form.

2) Take the green form to the funeral director who will take over the responsibility for arranging the funeral.
