Funeral Director's Role
Funeral Directors Role
At some time in our lives, most of us will make or assist in making funeral arrangements. This can mean making many decisions at a very difficult and emotional time.
Funeral directors are there to offer help and guidance during one of life's most difficult times.
WHO TO CONTACT WHEN SOMEONE DIES
In Australia today, very few people die at home therfore the relevant authorities are on hand to take care of formaltites.
If a person was to die at home, then the first person to contact would be the deceased's doctor so that a death certificate can be signed. Funeral arrangements cannot commencewithout a signed death certificate.
After contacting the doctor you may wish to contact a priest or minister as well as close family, and your funeral director who will guide you through making arrangments for the funeral.
Chris Lee and the caring staff at Peninsula Funeral Services are available 24 hours a day 7 days per week to help and advice you on the correct procedure to follow and make sure your needs are met.
