Contact the family doctor (or the doctor on call) who will come to your home to certify the death and will issue a ‘Medical Certificate’, which in time must be taken to the registrars. Once the doctor has attended most families prefer for their loved one to be conveyed to our chapel of rest. This can be arranged by telephoning us at any time of the day or night. We will give advice on the collection of the medical certificate and the registration process.
“We always use an exceptionally smart and discreet vehicle when we are called to attend”.

The above procedure is likely to have taken place with your permission by the senior in charge, Warden or Matron, who will be able to advise you of the whereabouts of the ‘Medical Certificate’.
