If the death occurred unnaturally, report the death to the police who will come to the house to investigate.

If the death occurred in a hospital, call one of the three PMJ representatives listed above and inform the person of the name of the hospital, floor and ward nr, name and address of the deceased and time of the Janaazah. The doctor at the hospital will issue the Notice of Death forms.

The cost for the grave, kaffan, planks, Toekamandi and transport of the mayet is for the account of the family of the deceased.

The Notice of Death forms with the deceased’s Identity Document should be handed to the PMJ representative.

The informant has to fill in his or her details on Page 2 of the Notice of Death form and also add his or her fingerprints.  A copy of the informant’s identity document must accompany the Notice of Death forms and handed to the PMJ representative before the Janaazah is scheduled to take place.
