Bereavement

If you are visiting this page due to the loss of a loved one, please accept our sincere condolences. The Trust bereavement service is here to help.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the Government Guidelines there is no longer a meeting with the Bereavement Officer or with the Registrar of Births and Deaths. 

If you are recently bereaved please call the Bereavement Team on 01922 656628 after 1000 am the next working day. We will take your details and contact you again once the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death has been completed by the appropriate Doctor.  

You will then be asked to make an appointment online with the Registrar.

The Bereavement Team will email the Registrar the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. At the time of the appointment that you have made with the Registrar the  Registrar will call you and go through the registration process. They will ask how many Death Certificates you need to buy (£11.00) and put these in the post to you, along with information about the Tell Us Once service.

They will also ask who your funeral director is and the will email the ‘Green Form’ to them.

For help in choosing a Funeral Director please go to Beyondlife.com or telephone 0800 044 9454

Patient Property will be available from the General Office please call 01922 656837 and they will arrange for you to collect the property.

I am sorry to say, but viewings are no longer available in the Chapel Of Rest
