Visiting Our Offices / Chapels of Rest

No one who has symptons or who should be self-isolating, in accordance with government advice should visit our premises. Any visit is to be by appointment only and by no more than two persons. This is in order that we can maintain at least two metres social distancing at all times. Hand sanitiser will available for clients as they enter and leave the building. We regret that toilet facilities will not be available at this current moment in time.

 

Unfortunately, we do not have facilities to safely embalm a deceased who's death is due or suspected to be part due from COVID - 19, therefore we are unable to offer any viewing of the deceased in this situation.

Registration of an Expected Death

The Medical Cause of Death Certificate for the deceased will be sent by email directly to the appropriate Registry Office. A Registrar will then contact the informant (normally the next of kin or executor - a list of the persons who qualify as informants can be found under the heading of "Registration" on our website with the addition of a funeral director where they have been authorised by a relative) to obtain the information they need to register the death of the deceased over the telephone. A Death Certificate is then emailed to the informant and the Green Form 9 emailed to the funeral director.
