Cope fully understand the urgency to bring your loved one out of hospital

All the family can rest assured that our care and concern starts as soon as you have called us

We will do everything in our power to accelerate this most important stage

There are various necessary procedures to be completed and Cope handle every single aspect with total competence

The one thing that a funeral director cannot do, is to register the death

There are legal requirements governing this and it is usually a close family member who will perform this duty

In certain circumstances, the Coroner may become involved, and an investigation will take place to confirm the cause of death. This is usually when the Doctor has not seen the deceased during the previous 14 days or where there is uncertainty

Your Cope Funeral Director clearly understands that the bereaved may need extra support at this time and will be communicating with the Coroner’s office several times each day, will keep you informed of the situation and explain what needs to be done

The delay caused by the involvement of the Coroner, is usually two or three working days and details of the funeral cannot be confirmed until the Coroner releases the paperwork

Your Cope Funeral Director will help and inform you every step of the way
