We have many years’ experience and knowledge: This is offered to you in the hope that our services will in some way ease the burden of your loss.
Once you get in touch and decide to use our Funeral Services we will arrange to have your loved-one brought into our care at Calvary Funerals, as soon as possible.
If the death is expected and occurs at home, first contact should be made with the family doctor who will arrange for the medical certificates to be issued. Then, call Calvary Funerals, where one of our helpful staff will advise you further.
If the death occurs in a Nursing Home or Hospital the family member should ask the staff of the establishment to contact Calvary Funerals who will take full control of the situation on your behalf.
If the death is unexpected immediately call 000. The Ambulance staff and Police will take control of the situation and assist you in whatever way they can.
The Police will arrange for a contracted undertaker to take the deceased into the care of the Coroner.
