What To Do When Someone Dies At Home
You will need to telephone the doctor, as this is legally required. The doctor may need to visit to confirm the death.
Contact the funeral director to inform them their services will be required.
Contact the surgery who will inform you when you can collect the death certificate from the surgery.
Please ensure you have spoken to the surgery and obtained the death certificate before making an appointment with the Registrar’s office.
You will then need to take the certificate to the Registrar's office together with the deceased's medical card. An appointment is necessary, so please contact them on 03000 415151 and ask for the Registrar's office. You may wish to book an appointment on-line: www.kent.gov.uk/births-ceremonies-and-deaths
The Registrar's office will issue you with a green form to be handed to the funeral director who will then be able to take complete responsibility for arranging the funeral.
