If the Doctor in attendance cannot state the cause of death, he or she will inform Her Majesty’s Coroner who will arrange to examine the deceased. Your initial contact in the event of an unexpected death or suspicious death, should be with the Police.
We are always here to support you if you need us at anytime. If you would prefer our team at Bespoke Funeral Care to take your loved one to the Coroner’s Chapel of Rest, please inform the Police Officer in attendance and we can then liaise with the Police for this to happen. In the majority of cases, death will be attributed to natural causes and therefore there will be no need for a post-mortem. The Coroner will forward the Death Certificate to the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages to enable you to register the death.
As soon as you are informed from the Coroner that your loved one can be taken to the funeral directors, contact us and we can then arrange for your loved one to be brought into our care.
