When You Lose a Loved One
The First Step
A cessation of life document must be signed by a doctor, paramedic or other suitably qualified person, confirming the passing, before your loved one can be brought into our care.
If the deceased has passed away at home, without any medical professional present, you will need to contact 000, the Ambulance service or a Doctor..
If the passing occured in a hospital or aged care facility, the medical staff will organise for that document to be completed and will then call us, as the nominated funeral provider, to commence transport of your loved one to our care facility in Dromana.

We will then assist you to plan a memorable funeral for your loved one.
