When Someone Dies in Hospital or in a Hospice

When someone dies in hospital, staff will arrange for a doctor to issue the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death which you will usually need to collect, along with any belongings, from the hospital.

If the funeral is to be a cremation, please advise the hospital staff so they can make arrangements for any additional documentation that is needed.

Contact us as soon as possible so that we can make arrangements to bring your loved one back into our care.
