Funeral Director help pages…

Apple iOS app

You are here:

We have developed an app to run on Apple iOS phones to be able to do some things whilst out and about on the move.

In particular this app allows photos to be taken for a number of likely reasons, whilst you are out of the office, ie photos of the current grave, id of a body that your picking up…

A more detailed description follows…

First Installation

When you first install the application, it looks as though it is working, but in fact it will have none of your live data, and so we first need to set up the connection to your server.

The settings will need modifying from the normal Apple settings menu.

The timeout of 5 seconds is normally fine, unless you have an unusually slow connection.

Clicking on the orange tab, will attempt to connect to the new server settings, if successful, it will let you know it is syncing, and then the login page will have a green title as shown in the images below.

If it fails then the Orange/Green tab will turn Red.

 

Successful connection

After successfully connecting to your data, you will be able to login with you user login information which will get you to the search screen.

Initially it will show the funeral contracts list, but you can change to the other options from the dropdown list.

What is available for this user is pre defined from the main application, this view shows all options.

 

Funeral Contracts

The five tabs here are to confirm the details of the deceased, the Next of Kin that will be involved, also quote details can be entered, or modified here.

A member of the Next of Kin will be signing this information as correct, and they also will be indicating their GDPR choices, and that they have seen your T&Cs.

This is in effect signing a contract, and as such we create a pdf of what has been signed for, and it is stored with the record on the server.

Cremated remains pickup

A page to indicate the status of whether cremated remains have been picked up, and then if they have reached our premises.

Cremated remains release

Where cremated remains are released to the next of kin.

First a quick confirmation of the deceased, then for you to select the next of kin, and which items are to be released, and finally the release screen for the next of kin to sign as having received.

Personal property release

This is very similar to the cremated remains release.

Where personal property are released to the next of kin.

First a quick confirmation of the deceased, then for you to select the next of kin, and which items are to be released, and finally the release screen for the next of kin to sign as having received.

Grave Photos

When there is a grave, you may choose to take photos before your involvement, to ensure that any breakages or anything else was either there before you were involved, or not.

The screen here shows the list of photos taken, if any, you can either click on one of the photos to see it, or add a photo.

Adding Photos

Adding any type of photo will use the window to the right, where you can add a name of the object for your records, and then a photo, from the phones camera.

This is used for grave photos, or property photos.

Clothes received

A simple screen to indicate that the clothes for the deceased have been received.

Transfers

These screens are for when you go and pickup body.

The first screen is to confirm the person, and where the date and time of death can be entered.

If it is known, the doctor for form 4 and 5 can also be entered here.

After that, some details about the body, any property with the deceased, a photo of any relevant id, at say a mortuary, and a signature at a mortuary confirming that we are picking up the correct person.
