If the death occurs at Home

If your loved one has died at home, you’ll have to notify your doctor (or the doctor in call) who will verify the death. If the death was anticipated and there is a nurse present, the doctor will authorize the nurse to verify the death. After the doctor or nurse has been certified, you may contact us anytime of the night or day to let us know that you wish to transfer your loved ones into our care.

The medical certification will be issued, typically at the time of the operation at the end of the working day, ready for collection. After you have received the health certificate in hand, you have to make an appointment with the Registrar’s Office , where the Registrar will need your medical certification.

If the death occurred unexpectedly or the doctor hasn’t seen the deceased in the past 14 daysafter the fact, then the case might be sent for coroner investigation. For more information on the Coroner Click Here.
