Family members, friends and neighbours can provide you with immediate support. They can help you and begin to contact other people for you.
Contact the family doctor or attending physician to advise of the death
If the death occurs at home, a doctor will need to certify the death. The doctor is responsible for issuing documentation required before a cremation or burial can take place. If the death is sudden, the police need to be called, and in some situations the Coroner will need to be involved. If the death has occurred in a hospital or nursing home, the duty nurse will do this task for you.
