Depending on how or where they died, there are a few processes that will need to be followed. If you are unsure at any time, please contact our Funeral Director and we'll do our best to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

A Funeral Director will guide you through the various decisions that need to be made about the funeral and any other issues related to the death. It's important that you feel comfortable with and trust the Funeral Director that you choose. Just Funerals are professional, reliable and dependable and qualified.

Our Funeral Director will need the following details about the deceased: full name, address, occupation, place of birth, marriage details, ages of living children and details about the deceased's parents.

This information is passed onto the Registrar General when the death is officially registered. We will also consult with you regarding your preferences for the funeral; venue, type of service, burial or cremation, casket and a number of other questions, ensuring we provide the service most fitting your requirements.

 

In the case of a sudden or unexpected death, an accidental death or if a doctor is unavailable, a coroner will be called in to establish cause of death. Usually a post mortem or autopsy will take place where the deceased's body is examined by a pathologist. If the coroner decides to hold an inquest, this usually takes place several months after the funeral and funeral arrangements will proceed as normal.

Provided there are no legal impediments, the funeral usually takes place within two to four days following death. It may be necessary to wait a little longer if family overseas need to travel to New Zealand.
