This tab is to provide visiting Funeral Directors with helpful information. If you cannot find the information you require you can contact the Mortuary on 01438 285408 where our team will help as much as possible.
The mortuary is located at Lister Hospital, Corey’s Mill Lane, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, SG1 4AB.
For the best access you should enter the hospital grounds via the North Road (Gate 6) entrance and follow the signage in place.
We provide an emergency 24 hour service all year around if you are bringing a deceased person into the mortuary. Please telephone the hospital switchboard on 01438 314333 and request that a porter attend and allow access.
The deceased will only be released from the mortuary for burial or cremation on production of
- A Transfer of Care form, signed by the family or a representative on behalf of the family.
- We may also require coroners clearance, depending on circumstances, however if we have this from the coroners already a duplicate will not be required, to clarify this speak to a member of the team.
This saves waiting for the death to be registered and the green disposal form to be issued by the registrar.
The mortuary is attended 08:30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday. However should you need to access this service outside of these times please speak to our team so that we can make sure there is the available staff.
