Events (was Locations / Services)
This screen is designed to capture additional locations or services associated with the deceased.
Although FreeDAM captures the funeral venue and burial or cremation location there are many instances where the deceased may be required to travel to another venue for a particular reason.
It may be that your team needs to know of a memorial service for a past funeral case or you may need to record where the refreshment venue will be.
The locations and services information on this screen will be used future developments.
These additional Locations and/or Services may include…
- Family Services
- Rosary Services
- Graveside Services
- Committal Services
- Ash interments
You are able to record other events of significance here also like…
- The arrival of clothing
- The dressing of the deceased
- the identification of the deceased (if a coroners case)
Note: The family present tick box allows you to indicate if the family will be present at a particular event.
These locations / Services will display on your FreeDAM whiteboard/Actionboards.
Funeral and Disposition events
Funeral and Disposition events entered on the case entry screen will display here automatically. These are not able to be changed on this screen for data integrity and clarity of use purposes but if these are changed elsewhere then the changes will reflect here on this screen.
You are able to assign staff members, a vehicle, the arrival time and the finish date and time to these if required.
Also you are able to add a comment to these events.
