If the person dies at home, you must first contact the family doctor to have him come and confirm the death. Then, contact us so that we can come to seek the body, once the doctor will have signed the death Bulletin.
If the death occurs in a hospital, contact us as soon as possible so that we can take the necessary steps for the transfer of the deceased person to our funeral home.
During this call, an appointment is fixed for the planning of the funeral.
During this meeting, we will guide you in the choice of rituals to honour the memory of the loved one and we plan with you the following details:
The place, date and time of visits, funeral and burial
The church, the chapel, the celebrant
The writing and publication of a death notice in the newspapers and on the internet sites
The choice of the casket, the urn, the reliquaries and/or funeral jewelry if need be
The choice of flowers, bookmarks, gratitude cards
The reception room, the caterer
The choice of a columbarium
The purchase of a monument
On the legal plan, we facilitate you the task by completing the forms in order to:
Register the death and request the death certificate to the civil status
Apply for benefits and/or annuities
