WHAT TO DO NEXT
At Signature Funerals we understand that when a person dies, whether it is expected or not, it can be difficult to know what you need to do next. We are here to support you every step of the way and this guide will help you gain a better understanding of what to do next:
Dying in Hospital or Other Care
The Bereavement team at the hospital will be able to offer their guidance and support. If someone dies outside of normal working hours, you may have to wait until the next working day to contact them. They will arrange for you to collect the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death and point you in the right direction of the appropriate Registrar.
Under normal circumstances, the death will need to be registered within 5 days, but you can contact us 01706 829482 at any time so that we can discuss the funeral arrangements with you.
Signature Funerals is based in Ramsbottom, Bury, serving the people of Lancashire and Greater Manchester. We have a very different approach to traditional funeral directors and would be delighted to talk with you. For any additional information please use our contact telephone number or fill your details in the form below. We will then get in touch shortly.
