What to do in time of Bereavement

If death occurs at home:

  1. Telephone the Doctor. He will visit to confirm death has taken place.
  2. Contact Funeral Director

When death occurs in hospital:

Contact Funeral Director to inform them that their services will be required.

You then need to collect the doctor's Death Certificate from the Doctors surgery or hospital(depending on place of death).

Take this to the Registrars for the area in which death took place,
also take the deceased's Medical Card if available and birth certificate. You will be issued a Green form

Take the Green Form to the Funeral Director who will take over complete responsibility for arranging the funeral.
