Organising a burial within 24 hours of death

You can call us to make a priority appointment if the deceased needs to be buried within 24 hours of death. We can issue the necessary paperwork so you can organise the burial as soon as you need to. After the burial you need to contact us to register the death. 

In some circumstances we may need to report the death to the coroner. This will mean we're not able to issue the paperwork to you within 24 hours.

Call us on 0161 234 5005, 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday


To contact us on a Saturday, please call 07904 417 282 between 9am and 3pm. 

If you need to contact us on a Sunday or bank holiday, please call 07720 913 958 between 10am and 2.30pm.

 

Please Note: the office will be closed on Friday 15th June as we are moving offices (just downstairs to the first floor of Heron House).  If you need to contact us urgently on that day between the hours of 9am and 4.30pm, regarding a burial within 24 hours, you should ring 07904 417 282 and leave a message. A member of staff will ring you back as soon as possible.  We will only be able to respond to urgent enquiries. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
