When Death Occurs

Death can be a difficult time.
We're here to help.

Whether a death occurs at home or elsewhere, it is important to know what comes next. The first person who should be contacted is the doctor who was last treating the recently deceased. The doctor is then required to issue a medical certificate indicating the cause of death, which then allows the deceased to be transferred to the funeral home.

If the circumstance of a death is unusual or sudden the police can be called, and the matter will become a coroner's case. If this occurs, the coroner will state when the deceased may be released to the funeral home after conducting the necessary autopsies/post mortems to determine the cause of death.
