When a death occurs unexpectedly at home
When a death occurs at home, unexpectedly or the deceased person hasn’t seen a doctor regularly (or at least during the preceding 3 months), the Police must be called. 

After the Police come and talk to you they may direct that the deceased person be taken to the Coroner’s facility for autopsy to establish the cause of death.  The usual time of transfer from home until release by the Coroner is 2 working days.

You should then contact us as soon as possible to:
  • Make an appointment for us to meet with you to make the funeral arrangements and complete the necessary paperwork; or
  • You can complete a Funeral Arrangement form on-line.
** Please note: if the deceased has completed a Funeral Pre-Arrangement or has Prepaid for a funeral, please advise us.

** The undertaker engaged by the Police to carry out the transfer should not be engaged to carry out the funeral, as he is specifically banned from "touting" funerals.

For your own protection you should report any such contact with you to the Police present and engage an ethical funeral director.

** Coroners Facility: Where a body is taken if cause of death is not determined at the place of death, an autopsy may be performed to find the cause of death, the coroner will release the body once the cause of death is known. The funeral director liases with the coroner and family for the retrieval of the body to perform the funeral. Coroners facilities only release at certain times so charges may occur  for us to pick up the deceased.
