What is the Procedure when a Death Occurs?
Regarding Transport of the Body.

  • If a person dies in hospital of natural causes, the doctor will issue a death notice. Many private hospitals don’t have mortuary facilities, in those cases a funeral director needs to be contacted immediately to collect the deceased. State Hospitals generally have mortuary facilities, the body must remain there until a death notice is issued.
  • If a person dies in hospital of unnatural causes, the body will need to be transferred to a state mortuary for a compulsory post-mortem (autopsy). The state mortuary will then issue a death notice.

The Mercedes-Benz Vito range has always stood for flexibility and economy, but the Vito 111 Tourer 9-seater underscores its claim of all-purpose value for a lot less, more than ever before.

For funeral transportation businesses planning to establish their fleet and professionalise their image - the Vito 111 Tourer is truly a vehicle that delivers.

The recently enhanced Vito with additional features offers tangible strengths and benefits where it matters to service delivery and maintenance at a lower cost than ever before.

Funeral Processions and Red Robots:

"Has anyone noticed this too...? ...a funeral procession passes straight through red robots or stop streets without Metro Police or points man controlling the intersection?
They have their hazards (some) on and their car lights and then because they are off to a funeral, they ignore all rules of the road. Is it so urgent to bury the dead that we must endanger the lives of the living?
Without the correct permission and the correct paperwork funeral processions must at all times obey all traffic laws and regulations."
- Derek Kirkby
Training Director, MasterDrive

Did You Know?

A bier was the first type of carrying device used to move remains. Made up of a flat wooden form, the body, wrapped in a shroud, or the coffin box was placed upon this framework and carried by hand to the burial place. This framework became known as a hearse: a way to transport the body or coffin.
Biers are still used today but are made of aluminum and have wheels for ease of movement. Also known as a church truck, it is used to move the casket to and from the church or funeral home. These hand-carried hearses evolved into horse-drawn wagons during the 17th century.

To the motor industry in SA...If we can offer a suggestion when selling/renting / leasing vehicles for the service of the funeral industry it would be this:
