How to order a funeral

  • ELPIS Funeral Directors will advise you how best to proceed and what should follow in the case of the passing of a loved one

The choice of funeral directors to arrange the funeral of your loved one is always yours!
Should the deceased‘s body be taken away by funeral directors other than your chosen ones, you are under no obligation to arrange the funeral with   them. The choice of a funeral home always rests entirely in your hands.  

In the event of death occurring in medical establishment or retirement home

  • The staff at the relevant facility will inform you of the passing of your nearest
  • The same personnel will arrange for the transfer of the deceased person to a morgue
  • Should no mortuary be available at the premises, the deceased will then be transferred to the morgue of the contracted funeral home. This, however, does not tie you to the use of their services. The choice of funeral directors to arrange the funeral of your loved one is always yours!
  • Contact our funeral directors by telephone or visit any one of our branches
  • The clothing you have chosen for the funeral of your loved one should then be taken directly to one of our offices. In no case whatsoever will it be necessary for you to visit the pathologist or a medical facility

In the event of death occurring at home

  • Call the doctor on the emergency number (155), who will issue the necessary documentation upon examination of the deceased
  • At the same time contact our funeral directors by telephone
  • Should the doctor examining the deceased not require a post-mortem, we will transfer the body of the deceased to our mortuary
  • Have the documents from the doctor ready to hand and prepare the clothing for the deceased person for the funeral directors
