With more and more people travelling these days it is important to know what to do when death occurs outside of your local area. Should you encounter this situation you only need to call us. As an independent funeral director these circumstances present no difficulties as we can make arrangements anywhere in the world.
In cases where a doctor is unable to determine the cause of death, it is necessary for the coroner to be notified – the police do this. The police prepare a report for the coroner who then seeks to determine the cause of death by contacting the doctor of the deceased or requesting a pathologist to inspect the body and carry out an autopsy.
