A Post Mortem will be performed to establish the cause of death. It is a legal requirement that the deceased be identified at the mortuary. As this is traumatic for most people, we suggest that your best friend or a family member accompanies you for this.
after the mortuary releases the body, your funeral services will attend to the removal of the deceased.
If you would like to have a private moment with your departed loved one, we can arrange the a private room for you to spend a last moment with your loved one.
