Time Of Death

Rely On Allan Pearse For Assistance

When one of your loved ones passes away, you’ll likely experience a series of intense feelings. Nobody likes having to deal with loss. When you couple these intense feelings with your duty as the funeral planner, it’s too easy to become overwhelmed.

Fortunately, we’re here to guide you through all necessary processes. Your funeral director will arrange the transfer of the deceased to their premises and facility. They will call you when appropriate and arrange a time to meet with you and your family to discuss funeral arrangements.

Seek Immediate Support

When the death of a loved one occurs, feelings of panic and helplessness may be overwhelming, but remember that you are not alone. It is important to reach out to close relatives, friends, and professionals for the help, support and comfort you need.

The initial telephone call made to a funeral home is known within the funeral industry as the First Call. During this call, we obtain basic information about you and your loved one, and try to guide and prepare you for your next steps. Depending where the death occurred, we may also need to arrange bringing your loved one into our care.

Common Scenarios

The initial steps you need to take when a death occurs vary according to the location of the deceased and the circumstances surrounding their death. Here are a few common scenarios and the typical outcome of each:

At Home

The attending doctor will officially confirm the death and issue a Life Extinct Certificate or Cause of Death Certificate. You can then notify Allan Pearse and we can bring your loved one into our care.

Aged Care

Aged care facilities require families to nominate their preferred funeral director when their family member becomes a resident. In this case, the staff will contact Allan Pearse once the family have been notified.

At Hospital

If the death occurs in hospital, the initial contact to Allan Pearse is not usually made by hospital staff, but by close family members. Once contact has been made with us, we will then coordinate with the hospital in order to bring your loved one into our care.

Unexpected Death

When a death is unexpected, a Doctor may not be able to issue the Cause of Death Certificate and the Coroner needs to be notified. This usually means that the Police Service will be required to attend in order to prepare a report for the Coroner to establish the cause of the death.
