When Someone Dies

When Someone Dies

What do I do when someone dies?

The first thing you must do when you think someone has died at home is to contact the medical services - either ambulance service or the deceased's GP. They will confirm the death and make sure the appropriate Death Certification will be drawn up.

If the person has died in hospital, the medical staff will certify the death and tell you where and when to collect the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death

Please contact Hardy's funeral directors as soon as possible. We will help to guide you through this process.
