When your looking for funeral directors in Newport, this can seem like a daunting task at a time when planning is the last thing on your mind. Finding the right funeral director is important to taking the pressure off. We have put together some handy hints and information so that you can be a little prepared. We will start with what to do when someone dies.
What To Do When Someone Dies
No matter where a person dies, a death certificate will need to be issued, so the funeral director will be able to take possession of the body. If a person dies at home a doctor will need to issue the death certificate. This must register within 5 days for England and wales, and 8 days in Scotland.
If the person has died in a hospital, barring any unexpected medical conditions where a post-mortem will be required. Once the death certificate has been issued, you can arrange collection by the funeral director. Contact your local funeral director as soon as you can, as some funeral arrangements can be made before the body is collected
Making Funeral Arrangements
As we have said, making funeral arrangements can seem daunting but remember that funeral directors are experts in their field and can help to guild you through each stage. Usually after the body has been collected the funeral direct will take you through the planning of the funeral service.
Starting by picking a date, then the order and feel of the service that best reflects the deceased. They will cover everything from the order of service to the transport. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask your funeral director. There is no such thing as a bad question, and they should be more than happy to help.
