What to do when Someone Dies
Arranging a Funeral
Simplicity Funerals can help you arrange the funeral you want for a loved one, or help make carrying out the wishes of a deceased person easier.
When a loved one dies it can not only be a sad time but also very confusing. Simplicity Funerals can help you through this time and advise and assist you to make the funeral arrangement process worry-free.
We understand death occurs at any time, day or night feel free to contact us on (03) 539 0066.
Death at Home, Hospital or Resthome
Whether a death occurs in a hospital, a resthome or at a private home a doctor needs to certify the death by completing a Medical Certificate of Causes of Death. If cremation is decided upon a doctor needs to sight the body before our funeral directors transfer the deceased into our care. A call to us for advice and assistance at this time will help clarify the situation on (03) 539 0066.
If the death occurred as a result of an accident and the coroner is involved, a funeral director would be contacted to convey the body to a public mortuary. The family of the deceased will still need to organise a funeral with a funeral director of their choice. They are under no obligation to use the funeral director contracted for the original transfer.
