When a loved one passes away there are many decisions to be made at a time of much personal distress. The following information is intended to help during the initial stages of bereavement.

If death occurs at home :

If a death occurs at home and the deceased has been attended by their doctor during the 14 days preceding their death, the first contact should be with the family doctor. The doctor will attend as soon as possible (or the Ďon-callí doctor if the death occurs outside normal surgery hours) and if satisfied with the cause of death after a medical examination, will issue a medical certificate of the cause of death, which can normally be collected from the surgery by the family. Once the doctor has completed his visit to the house, you can call us and we will arrange a suitable time, day or night, to come to your home.

If death occurs at hospital or in a nursing home :

If a death occurs at hospital or in a nursing home the staff will make the necessary arrangements for a doctor to issue a medical certificate of the cause of death and will advise you when this may be collected. Please let staff know if cremation is planned so that the necessary documentation can be completed.

Sudden deaths :

When a death occurs unexpectedly the usual procedure is for the police to be involved and they will arrange for a doctor to attend the scene. They will then inform the Coroner who will either ask you who your chosen funeral director is, or to arrange for a contracted funeral director to attend. No doctor will issue a medical certificate of the cause of death and the Coroner will send all relevant paperwork directly to the Registrarís Office.

Registering the death :

A death must normally be registered with the Registrar of Births, Marriages and Deaths within five days. If the death has been referred to the Coroner, it cannot be registered until the Registrar has received authority from the Coroner to do so. You will need to make an appointment with the Registrarís Office in the district in which the death occurred (see below for addresses). The Registrar will require the medical certificate of the cause of death, the deceasedís birth certificate, medical card and if applicable marriage certificate. The Registrar will also need to know the deceasedís date and place of birth and death, first name, surname and maiden name if applicable, their usual address and occupation and the name and occupation of their spouse and their date of birth if applicable. You will also need to provide any book or document relating to a pension or allowance paid to the deceased from public funds. The Registrar who registers the death will issue a green certificate for burial or cremation unless the Coroner has given an order for burial or a certificate for cremation, in both cases these should be given to us so the funeral can take place.
