Funeral directors and Undertakers
Information for the bereaved
The Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust Mortuary department is responsible for taking care of the deceased. We will look after those who have passed away with dignity and respect until next of kin have organised an undertaker to make the funeral arrangements.
For enquires concerning a loved one please contact the hospital patient affairs officer via the main switchboard on: 0845 155 1000.
For further support and help you may also want to talk to the care team who looked after the patient before they died.
