What you need to know in times of bereavement

 

If death occurs at home.

As soon as possible, inform the doctor that the death has occurred. He/She may write out the Medical Certificate of Death when he/she visits the house, or may request you attend the surgery for this purpose.

 

When Death Occurs in Hospital

When death happens in hospital, the procedure is very similar. Apply to the hospital for the Medical Certificate of Death and not your family doctor.

 

The Coroner

In cases where the death has been reported to the Coroner, the procedure is somewhat different. The Coroner and his officers are working in your interest. When a doctor cannot give a cause of death and issue a Medical certificate of Death, the death must be reported to a Coroner who will establish the cause of death. The Coroner will then send the relevant document to the registrar's office in the district where the death occurred, for the Death Certificate to be issued.
