Registering a Death

The Bereavement Care Services Team offers support to the relatives and friends of people who have died in hospital. We wish to offer our sincere sympathy to you, your family and friends in your bereavement.

Bereavement is a time of grief and sorrow – this is a natural and normal part of your loss. It is also unfortunately a period during which a number of matters must be dealt with. All of this can prove bewildering and stressful and we hope this information will help and assist you during this difficult time.
It may be possible to view your relative before they leave the ward. However, after this we would encourage you to wait until they are at the funeral directors. We can arrange a viewing at the hospital in certain circumstances.
The Bereavement Care Services staff can give you help and information and can arrange for you to see the doctor who was looking after your relative to help answer any questions you may have.
