What To Do When Someone Dies?
If someone you love has passed away, then we’re awfully sorry for your loss. It’s very common to not know what to do when someone dies, and not know how to legally process the death. We’re going to talk you through all the steps necessary to take so that it’s as painless as possible while you’re grieving.
Initially, you need to register the death with the Registrar for Births and Deaths that covers the area in which the death happened by making an appointment. An executor or family member usually does this but it can also be done by whoever was present at the time of death. If you don’t know whether you have the authority to do this, then we can advise you, please get in touch.
When you attend your local Registrar you will need to take the following with you, if available but do not worry if not:
- The Medical Certificate
- The Deceased’s NHS Medical Card
- Marriage Certificate or Civil Partnership Certificate
- Driving Licence
- Council Tax Bill
