If the deceased person has died at a private address, in addition to the essential information on the first call checklist, it is recommended that a funeral director also ask these additional questions:
- Has a doctor or a person qualified to confirm death (e.g. a paramedic) attended?
- The name of the doctor or person qualified to confirm death (if appropriate)
- Confirmation that the doctor or person qualified to confirm death has given permission for the deceased person
to be moved.
- Are the family ready for the deceased to be moved to the funeral home.
