Stay At Home Funeral Arrangements – What You Need

Thank you for the confidence you have placed in Fosters Funeral Directors.

We want our client families to feel comfortable about making funeral arrangements in a time of uncertainty or when unable to travel. We have created this website-assisted arrangement process to help make arrangements as easy as possible for you. We can take you  through the various steps over the phone or you can jump ahead and review or complete some of the steps if you feel comfortable. This page will serve as an agenda for the arrangement call.

There are various items that will need to be discussed during the time of the arrangements. We have categorised them into 4 groups in this phase:

  • Loved One/ Family Member information
  • Funeral Plan In Place or Not
  • Family/Client Contact Information
  • Place of Death
  • Death Certificate Issued and Death Registered (F14 issued)
  • Post Mortem required
