When and where to begin?
May we offer our sincere condolences realising that all we say and do at this time may seem confusing and possibly inadequate but, our thoughts and best wishes are with you. If there is any way we may be able to assist you, please do not hesitate to phone us.

We are available to answer any of your questions, to provide help, care, guidance and any support that you may need, 24 hours day - every day.

Losing someone close to you is unnatural and feels very unreal because we rarely have to deal with this event in our lives. Even if the death was expected, you will still probably feel numb, shocked, or be so upset, you seemingly cease to function. These responses are quite 'normal' in this situation. One thing you could think about is whether there is a person, family member or even people you can contact to support and help you or even be with you over the first few days at least.

 

"The process that you need to begin"

  • Obtain the Medical Certificate of the Cause of Death (G.P., Hospital or H. M. Coroner – see below)
  • Make an appointment to register the death at your local Register Office
  • Commence the Funeral Arrangements
    (Contact your chosen Funeral Director who will advise you)

Find out if there is a Will, a Pre-paid Funeral Plan, both or, written instructions as this may contain requests or instructions about funeral arrangements.

Deciding on Burial or Cremation

It is up to the executor of the Will or, if no executor is named, the nearest relative or next of kin to decide whether the deceased is to be buried or cremated. Check whether the deceased left any indication of their wishes.

Choosing a Funeral Director

Services are arranged and conducted by funeral directors, so you will need to choose which one to use.• Funerals are relatively expensive and prices vary considerably. It is wise to obtain an idea of costs prior to engaging a funeral director / undertaker.

If a Pre-paid Funeral Plan exists, there may be little or no extra payment required.

If the applicant is in receipt of a state benefit, they may be able to apply for help with the funeral costs – your funeral director will be able to advise you accordingly.

A basic funeral does not include the costs of some items you may expect e.g. floral tributes, notices in the local paper and possibly, some disbursements - your funeral director will be able to advise you further.

Your Funeral Director will NEED:

The Certificate for Burial or Cremation (Green Form from the Registrar).
or
The Order for Burial (Form 101), which the coroner will have provided where applicable
or
The Certificate for Cremation (Cremation Form 6), which the coroner will have given to the funeral director where applicable.

One copy of the Death Certificate if a Pre-paid Funeral Plan exists.
