“Each family is different with individual needs. There is no right or wrong, when organising a funeral.

If it is important to your family then it is important to us.

Never be afraid to make requests, as in most cases these can be arranged.”

At Home

This can be as a result of a long illness or very sudden. If the passing is sudden an Ambulance should be called, they will assist by helping you contact the local Doctor if they are not available to issue a certificate the police may need to be contacted.

If the passing was expected the Doctor should be contacted if not available the Palliative Care Team may issue a temporary certificate.

At Hospital

If your loved one passes away in the hospital. Public Hospitals and some Private Hospitals have facilities where they will hold your love one until you have contacted our office.

At A Nursing Home

Generally, most Nursing Home and some Private Hospitals require you to inform them of the Funeral Director of Choice so that after the Doctor has issued the Medical Cause Certificate they will contact the funeral director on your behalf.

Therefore, if your loved one is currently or soon to be living in a Nursing Home it is prudent to have some funeral pre-arrangments in place
