Planning a Funeral During Covid-19
Planning a funeral can be a difficult task in normal circumstances and here at Balmoral we do our utmost to try and make it easier for your family. During this difficult and confusing time we are still providing families with a dignified and personal family service, to help and assist you to arrange things as efficiently as possible during the present disruption.
If the death of your loved one has taken place at home, care environment or in hospital and a death certificate (Form 11) has been issued, the doctor will send this electronically to the Registrar in your local area. (Should the death be reported to the Procurator Fiscal, we will liaise with them and keep you informed as to the progress of matters). At this time registration appointments will be done remotely via telephone and once registration is complete the registrars will send the Certificate of Registration of Death (Form 14) directly to us if you inform them of your chosen funeral director.
In the meantime,
We can also then begin to arrange the funeral. In line with the policy being adopted by most funeral companies and in an attempt to stay within social distancing guidelines, we are still offering our funeral homes to be used to make all necessary arrangements, however if you would prefer not to use one of our funeral homes we are able to make arrangements by telephone and/or e-mail.
If you require to get in contact with us we are available 24hours a day.
Your local branch telephone number can be found on our home screen or the contact us section of our page.
