WHAT TO DO IN TIME OF BEREAVEMENT
If Death Occurs at Home
- Telephone for a doctor to visit
- Contact a funeral director
- The doctor will issue a medical certificate of cause of death for collection as soon as possible. This will usually be the following day. If it is necesary for the doctor to report the death to the coroner, this will be done as soon as possible.
- Once the medical certificate of cause of death has been collected, it must then be taken to the registrar who will register the death and provide you with a death certificate.
