Registering a death

If there has been an unexpected death in your family and you need assistance, you can get in touch with Victoria Funeral Home Ltd.

Things you need to be aware of in the event of a death

In the event of a death, you are required to notify certain people and organisations. At Victoria Funeral Home Ltd, we understand this is a difficult period for you and are always on hand to clarify any queries you may have.

If your loved one passed away in a hospital, hospice or nursing home, somebody will get in touch with you and a doctor will issue a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. Once all the formalities have been taken care of, you will have to contact a funeral home to take care of the funeral services. If you need more information, do not hesitate to contact us.

How to register a death?

You’re legally required to register a death within five days in the district where it has taken place. Most registration offices have an appointment system in place and you’ll need to produce certain documents including the Certificate of Cause of Death. If you don’t want to go through this whole process alone, we’re more than happy to send one of our directors to accompany you. We serve the local community in Aberdeen.
