Some Practical Life Details Your Funeral Director Handles
We don’t often envision the paperwork that accompanies the passing of a loved one in our society.
At Can-Trust-Funerals, bereaved families can focus on their final farewells and be relieved of the complexities of the legal points and logistics as part of the service provided by the team of professional funeral directors.
British Columbia especially has Acts and Regulations with restrictions in addition to what is found in the rest of Canada. Can-Trust reliably and regularly handles these sometimes confusing for clients for Richmond, Coquitlam, Burnaby and Vancouver funeral services.
You will find your Can-Trust funeral director looks after:
- A release form must be signed before the body of the recently departed can be relayed to the funeral home’s care. This includes transportation from home or hospital, care of the body and preparation for the funeral service or pre-arranged burial or cremation.
- Transportation plans may include foreign repatriation of the deceased in which case flights and documentation is arranged.
- This will include reporting to Vital Statistics, creating the death certificates, and disposition permits. The team member caring for the family will also cancel social insurance cards, inform the Credit Bureau to red flag measures against identity theft after a death.
After the burial, or the funeral services and memorials, attention to the people, as well as the necessary paperwork, continues. This may mean counselling, discussion of accessing death benefits, medical services and legal correspondence.
At Can-Trust, all this is handled directly by a funeral director completely familiar with the family and their needs, never a dispassionate sales person. Throughout their comprehensive service, Can-Trust’s professionals believe in Compassion, Always.
