When Death Occurs

When death occurs at home, please contact us once the doctor has attended to verify the death. If death has occurred in the hospital, please contact us during our opening hours at your earliest convenience.

If your loved one has not been under the doctor’s care on a regular basis, the emergency doctor will automatically inform the Coroner’s office. Cooksley’s Independent Funeral Services are contracted to work on behalf of HM Coroner’s in Northamptonshire, and will be able to liaise with them, and offer you additional advice.
