• There are times when it is necessary due to religious custom for a funeral to take place within twenty-four hours of a patient’s death. Therefore the death must be registered prior to this occurring. Usually deaths cannot be registered at the weekend, however in these special circumstances the arrangements are as follows;
  • Contact Liverpool City Call Centre on 0151 233 3004 to see if arrangements for the issue of the burial paperwork can be made outside of normal business hours. There is a nominated registrar available at limited times over the weekend.
  • Telephone the Merseyside Jewish Community Care Services, 0151 733 2292. Please note that the telephone will not be answered on the Sabbath or on any religious Jewish festivals. If it is a weekend, there is a message providing an out of hours mobile telephone number. If the deceased person’s family have connections with a synagogue they should contact the synagogue.
  • Telephone the Liverpool Muslim Society, Al Rahma Masjid, on 0151 709 2560.
