What To Do When A Death Occurs


If a Death occurs at home and the loved one is under Hospice Care

Contact the Hospice Nurse. A Hospice Nurse will respond to your home and make the pronouncement of death. Ask the Nurse to contact Humboldt Cremation and Funeral Service at (707) 443-1104. We answer our phone 24 hours a day.

If a Death occurs at the hospital, Hospice, Nursing Home or Assisted Living Center

The Nurse or Physician will come to the room and make the pronouncement of death. Ask the Nurse to contact Humboldt Cremation and Funeral Service at (707) 443-1104. We are available 24 hours a day.

If a Death has occurred and the Medical Examiner or County Coroner is involved

Authorize the Investigator or Coroner to release the loved to Humboldt Cremation and Funeral Service. Our caring staff will respond to the location of passing and will receive the loved one into our care. Our staff will also contact the next of party to finalize the cremation arrangements.
