At Home

Contact the deceased’s doctor (or out of hours doctor i.e., Dalriada doctor) who, in normal circumstances, will issue the Medical Certificate cause of Death or if after hours confirm death until the deceased’s own G.P. can issue the Certificate. You should then contact ourselves to discuss further details.

At Hospital

Once the death certificate has been issued, we will arrange with the mortician/porter to collect and bring your loved one to our funeral home. We will then arrange a suitable time and place, to meet to discuss funeral arrangements.

In Nursing Home

Once the death has been certified by a medical practitioner or a qualified nurse, we will contact the nursing home to arrange a suitable time to collect your loved one. We will then arrange a suitable time and place to meet to discuss funeral arrangements.

By law, all deaths that occur in Northern Ireland must be registered before burial takes place unless the death is referred to the coroner. Deaths should be registered before the funeral takes place, except where the matter has been referred to the coroner. If the coroner is involved, registration will take place after the funeral.

Currently due to ongoing Covid regulations, we provide all necessary details required to the local register.

Q. Where you can register a death?
A. At any registrar’s office within Northern Ireland.
