The Procurator Fiscal (Scotland) is automatically involved if a person has died suddenly at home. If the deceased has not been under a doctor’s care on a regular basis; the emergency doctor, or any police involved, will inform the relevant Procurator Fiscal. At the fiscal’s discretion, a post mortem examination may be required. This can delay the funeral itself, but we can still start the planning process to get everything ready for when the body is released by the coroner.
When someone dies away from home or abroad, regardless of circumstance, you should read our Repatriation section for more information.
