The Co-operative Funeralcare - Your Guide to a Funeral


What to do when someone dies

A note on language Although we recognise the person who died was a special and unique individual, we will use the term ‘the deceased’ throughout this guide. Important information If you know that the person who has died wished to donate their organs or tissue for transplant after their death , please make the team aware as soon as possible. It is not always possible to carry out these wishes depending on the circumstances of the death but informing professionals quickly increases the chances of this happening. Please also inform the team as soon as possible if there is signed consent to donate the deceased to medical science.
