The Co-operative Funeralcare - Your Guide to a Funeral



After the post-mortem examination

If the cause of death is found to be natural and there are no other circumstances requiring an Inquest, the Coroner will provide the appropriate paperwork instead of an MCCD allowing the death to be registered. This is often sent direct to the Registrar but you may be asked to collect it in person. In all other circumstances, the Coroner will usually open an Inquest. It is usual for the deceased to be released promptly for burial or cremation, even if the Inquest cannot be held for some time, but there might be some delay in releasing the deceased if the death was ‘suspicious’. The funeral director will contact the Coroner’s office to find out when they can collect the deceased to prepare for the funeral.
