A Death Has Occurred

We are sorry for your loss. Please call us at (614) 429-5699 right away to notify our staff.

If someone has died at home and they are NOT in the care of a hospice:
You must contact local police/fire department (dial 911). They will give you additional instructions after they arrive. It is possible that they may involve the County Coroner or that your loved one may be taken to a hospital or other facility. If you are asked about which funeral or cremation service provider to call, please give them our telephone number: (614) 429-5699.

If someone has died at home and they ARE in the care of a hospice:
Please contact someone from the hospice. A nurse or other hospice representative will come to the home. They will know what steps to take.   If you are asked about which funeral or cremation service provider to call, please give them our telephone number: (614) 429-5699.

If someone has died at a hospital, nursing home or other care facility:
The staff of the care facility will know what needs to be done. If you are asked about which funeral or cremation service provider to call, please give them our telephone number: (614) 429-5699.

If someone has died and they have been taken to the “Coroner’s Office” or “the Morgue”:
In most cases, we will need to meet to get county-specific paperwork signed before the Coroner will allow your loved one to be transferred into our care. Please call us at (614) 429-5699.
