Visiting a person who has died


Visiting at the hospital

After a bereavement some relatives choose to visit their loved one at the hospital. Appointments can be arranged Monday to Friday between 08:30 to 15:00 by calling the relevant Chapel of Rest who will be able to agree a time with you. Please note that visiting appointments are for half an hour and must be pre-booked by calling the Chapel of Rest.

St James's University Hospital - 0113 206 4312

Leeds General Infirmary - 0113 392 3313

If you wish to visit on an evening or at the weekend please contact the ward where your relative died and they will facilitate a visit to the Chapel of Rest if staffing levels on the ward permit.

Visiting at the funeral directors

Some relatives prefer to visit their loved one at the funeral home. Most funeral directors will be able to help arrange this and you should call them to arrange a time to visit.
