POST – MORTEM SERVICES AT LEE FUNERAL HOME
Post-mortems provide useful information about how, when and why a loved one died, and they enable pathologists to obtain a better understanding of how diseases spread. Learning more about illnesses and medical conditions benefits other patients too, because it means they will receive more effective treatment in the future.
Lee Funeral Home directors are always willing to offer you support and advice required for this service.
What happens after the Post-Mortem?
After the post mortem, the pathologist will provide a provisional report which is only for the use of the coroner. This report gives an opinion on the cause of death and will indicate if the pathologist has kept any body tissue samples for testing, what the samples are and if the testing will destroy the samples.
The pathologist will then send the coroner a final report. It can take several days or longer depending upon the complexity of the post mortem examination, including any tests of the tissue samples.
Lee Funeral Home Director or representative will gently pass this information to you and your family. You can ask for a copy of the final report.
However, you might not be able to have a copy if it’s part of an ongoing police investigation.
Feel free to contact us for more on post mortems.
