When to contact us

How do I contact you?

By telephone 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

By calling personally at one of our offices during office hours.

By asking us to call at your home where you often feel most comfortable.

What happens when someone dies at home or in a nursing home?

  • Usually a doctor is called.
  • Once the doctor has been, please telephone us to arrange the removal to our Chapel of Rest.
  • We provide experienced staff 24 hours a day to effect the removal within an hour of your call.
  • A funeral director will contact you either that day or possibly the next morning to arrange a convenient time to sit down and discuss the funeral arrangements with you.

What happens when someone dies in hospital?

  • — You will normally be informed by the hospital.
  • — Please contact us to let us know as soon as possible.

How do I register a death?

  • All deaths need to be registered at the local register office in the sub-district where the death occurred.
  • We will advise you on all aspects of registration; Where to go; documents required, opening hours, appointments necessary etc.
  • —Sometimes it is possible to inform the registrar of a death by declaration: i.e. in a different registry office than the local one.  This is particularly useful if you live in a different area to that where the death occurred.  We will be happy to advise you of the procedure.

What happens if the Coroner is involved?

  • Sometimes a death may have to be reported to H.M. Coroner.
  • — You will be kept informed by the coroner's officer - sometimes a policeman.
