Initially there are a small number of things you need to do after someone passes. The responsibility of the family or next of kin is to register the death with the Registrar at your local registration office.
Ian Brown Funeral Director can advise you on understanding what documents and certificates are required in order to do this. You will also need to let people know, including relatives, friends, Government organisations and service providers, including banks and building societies, as well as solicitors who will have information about the will and or the estate.
If you or someone you know are finding it difficult to cope with grief, or you would just like to talk to someone outside of your family and friends, there are a wide range of organisations that can offer support, alternatively please ring Funeral Partners bereavement advice line on 0808 164 2239 Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm.
