When can I arrange the funeral?
A funeral can be arranged for any time after a Medical Certificate of Death has been issued by a medical practitioner. If the death has been reported to the coroner, the date when the funeral can be held will be affected.
When arranging a funeral, it is important that the person making the arrangements can give instructions and make decisions regarding the funeral details. This person will also be responsible for arranging payment for the funeral.
You may make funeral arrangements at your home, at the funeral home or another location, such as a solicitor’s office or friend’s home.
