LOSING A LOVED ONE

The arrangement of a funeral or cremation of a loved one is not something that a person does regularly. Add to this the fact that very few people wish to think about death, then it is understandable that most people are at a loss when someone near to them dies.

AVBOB has been serving the community for more than 80 years, and we would like to share our experience with you.


 WHAT TO DO WHEN A LOVED ONE PASSES AWAY

Irrespective of the time of day or night, contact MAGDA ROUX as soon as possible to make arrangements for the removal of the deceased. Magda Roux is available 24 hours a day and her contact telephone number is 072-313-7466.

Funeral arrangements are usually made at AVBOB Nigel, but if need be, Magda Roux will visit you at home so that the necessary arrangements can be made in private. If the funeral or cremation is to take place in a town or city other than where the death occurred, you can ask Magda Roux to make the necessary arrangements.

 WHAT DOCUMENTATION IS REQUIRED

By law, all deaths must be registered. To enable us to do so, the following are required:

The identity document of the deceased. (If the deceased was
   not a South African citizen, then his/her passport).
A medical certificate completed and signed by the deceased's
   doctor. We usually obtain this on your behalf.
Where applicable, the name and number of the deceased's
   pension fund.
All funeral policies under which the deceased was covered and/or
   proof of membership of any funeral scheme.

 WHICH DECISIONS MUST BE MADE?

Certain decisions surrounding the funeral or cremation need to be made. Consult with the deceased's next of kin, friends, clergymen, etc. so that everyone's wishes can be considered. You may also be led by the wishes of the deceased before death, for example by the contents of the will.


The decisions include the following:


Whether the deceased must be buried or cremated.
When the funeral/cremation is to be held (date and time).
Where will the service be held? Not only in which town or city but
   also the venue, e.g. in a church, chapel or at the graveside.
Who will conduct the memorial service, if one is required?
What flowers, which are traditionally part of a funeral or         
   cremation, are required? What must be done with them after the
   service?
Which newspaper will carry the notice of the funeral or cremation?
Who will act as pallbeares?
How many funeral pamphlets are required? What must be
   included?
What type of coffin is preferred? (A choice can be made from the
   selection available in our showroom).

No matter the circumstances, AVBOB and its personnel are "there when you need us most". We are experienced in these matters, and will advise and support you at all times.

After consultation with the family or their representative, we undertake to make arrangements with all the relevenat persons and authorities that relate to your specific sircumstances. This forms part of our service to you.
