Let Us Help With Funeral Arrangements
At Lady Anne Funerals, our greatest concern is easing your burden and we can help you arrange a funeral as soon as you obtain a death certificate. Once we have this document we can go ahead with the funeral arrangements – planning a beautiful service for your loved one no matter your religious faith or cultural background.
What Must Be Organised Before The Funeral Arrangements?
There are a few pieces of legal information that is required upfront when arranging a funeral service. The first thing we need is a copy of the Death Certificate. In the case of an expected or natural cause of death, a doctor will need to sign a Death Certificate. If the death occurs at home, and had seen a doctor in the last 6 months, the family doctor should be called to issue the Death Certificate.
If the death occurs in a private hospital or nursing home, the nursing staff will contact the doctor for you. If someone dies in a public hospital, the attending doctor will issue the certificate.
If none of the above applies to the death of your loved one, for example, the death was an accident, suicide or result of foul play then you must first call the police who will then submit a report to the State Coroner. As well, there are a number of circumstances when the police will still need to be called which you can keep reading about over on our What to do next page.
Our ladies are professional Funeral Director’s and are happy to liaise with the Coroner’s Department on your behalf, simply call us after you have notified the police.
