Guiding you through the first steps

When there is a death in the family, it’s hard to know where to start. You have organising to do and processes to follow. Below are three steps that can help you start the process of organising a funeral for your loved one.

Contact family members

This is important. Our family and friends are the support we need when times are hard. When people live out of town, informing them early of a loved ones death allows them the time to make preparations to attend the funeral and potentially assist with funeral arrangements as well.

Contact the attending doctor

A doctor is responsible for issuing the medical causes of death certificate. This certificate is needed before a burial or cremation can take place. In some instances a coroner might be involved when a doctor cannot sign the forms. The team at Hardings can assist you through this process.
