THE PASSING OF A LOVED ONE.

Our role is to listen to you, the bereaved, and provide guidance and care as you decide on the type of funeral you want to create for your loved one.

WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?

There are many different circumstances in which a loved one can pass away. Not knowing where to turn can cause additional grief, at what can already be a devastating time.

 

Goodridge-Milford Funeral Directors, operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, allowing you to call us at any time for advice or assistance.

 

We have all the facilities and proficiency to best care for your loved ones. We understand bereavement and so, are truly committed to supporting you every step of the way.

EXAMPLES OF POTENTIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

If your loved one passes away at home or in someone else’s home, you’ll need to contact their GP to confirm the death and provide a medical certificate.

The care home team will be able to verify the death, but you may also need to contact your loved one’s GP for a medical certificate.

The hospital will have a dedicated Bereavement Office where they will be able to arrange for the doctor responsible for the care of your loved one to confirm the death. The remains are usually kept at an on-site mortuary until you are able to arrange for a funeral director to collect them.

REGISTERING A DEATH

We can begin arrangements for the funeral upon your request, however, before the service can take place, we will require either a Certificate for Burial or a completed Application for Cremation. 

First, you will need to register the death of your loved one within the first 5 days of their passing. This can be done at the register office most local to the area that your loved one resides.  Depending on your choice, you will then be provided with the necessary documents.
