When Death Occurs
Whether a death occurs at home or elsewhere, the first person who should be contacted is the Doctor who was last treating the deceased who will issue a medical certificate of cause of death, therefore the deceased can be transferred to the funeral home.
If the circumstance of a death is unusual or sudden the police can be called, this matter will be a coroner’s case. Therefore, the coroner will state when the deceased will be released to the funeral home after conducting an autopsy/post mortem if necessary to determine the cause of death.
The second person to contact is a funeral director who will be able to support you and prepare all of your desired funeral arrangements and needs. Through great regard and admiration, Eternity Funerals will guide and support you at this time of grief, ensuring all requirements are met and followed accordingly.
