I'm sure we planned my mum's without it. Have you asked a funeral home?

We were given a temporary death certificate following an inconclusive post Mortem so we're able to go ahead with the funeral before the inquest. The coroner and the funeral director were bothreally helpful and I would recommend asking the Coroner if you can arrange the funeral. Even if you can't book a date, you could make all the other arrangements.

You sign a pink form ready for the FD to collect the deceased.

The only person who can give permission is the coroner.

We were given an interim death certificate after the post mortem and the coroner's assistant specifically told us that my son's body would be released and we could have a funeral.

We still don't have a proper death certificate as there has to be an inquest, but we were given permission to have the funeral.
