When a loved one passes
When a loved one passes away it is always difficult to know what to do first. Our aim at Roy & McIntyre Funeral Home is to provide you with the guidance you need at each stage of the arranging process in an open, empathetic and considerate manner. If you are at all unsure of anything, please call us on 01259 769995, we are available for advice and support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If the death should take place in a hospital, hospice or residential care home, then the immediate steps are taken by members of the care staff following their set procedures.
At home, the first practical step to be taken is for the doctor to be contacted to confirm and certify the death. Following confirmation, the family may wish to contact us, in order for us to bring your loved one into our care
When a death is sudden, unexpected or the result of an accident it maybe reported to the Procurator Fiscal for further investigation. However if you contact us as soon as possible after death we can still guide you through the whole process.
