Sudden or Unexpected Death
When someone has died unexpectedly or the doctor is not certain of the cause of death, the case will often be referred to the Coroner’s Office.
It’s still a good idea to contact your funeral director at an early stage. A provisional date can be booked for the funeral, we will also help with some arrangements and we will liaise with the Coroner’s Office for you.
