It’s a hot country thing! In Spain and the Canary Island when one shuffles off this mortal coil the process of dealing with your remains is very quick and can also be very complicated. Most funerals take place within 24-48 hours of death.

There is a legal path that must be followed starting with the Police, (Guardia Civil), being advised of the individual that has passed away, following on from this a Doctor is called who issues a temporary death certificate.

A local funeral director is then contacted by the police or the Doctor. We are in Spain but there is a good chance that the attending funeral director will speak some English, of course this cannot be guaranteed.

He will ask for a release form to be signed by next of kin or surviving spouse allowing him to remove the deceased. At this point the cost of your demise has not even been discussed!
