When a death occurs there are many decisions that have to be made and various legal requirements that have to be met.
Within these pages you will find information that will help guide you with the procedures for your specific circumstances. If you are unable to find the answers to your questions here then please feel free to contact us.
Transferring The Deceased
Whether the funeral arrangements are to be for burial or cremation you can call us to arrange an appointment to discuss the forthcoming funeral. The appointment can be held at our offices or we are happy to attend your home.
The funeral arranger will contact the minister or funeral officiant and will make the necessary arrangements at the crematorium, cemetery or church (as required). They will also ensure that all the required legal documentation is completed.
Registering A Death
In the case of a sudden, unexpected or industry related death, a Coroner is required to investigate the circumstances of death. It then becomes the Coroner’s responsibility to determine how and why an individual died.
If a deceased has been taken into the Coroner’s care, a date for the funeral cannot be made until the Coroner has completed their investigation.
