In Times of Bereavement


In the unfortunate event of a bereavement, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;


    • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)

    • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.

    • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Arrange the funeral


The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.
