We recognise the many difficulties you face at this time. The following information provides guidance about what to do after a bereavement.
Death registration appointment
You will need to make an appointment to register a death.
This NHS Bereavement support webpage lists organisations that offer help and advice to those dealing with bereavement.
After registering the death, you can organise the funeral yourself if you wish.
You may apply for probate to manage the deceased's estate (money, property and possessions).
Corresponding with organisations
When you manage the affairs of someone who has died, you may need to correspond with many organisations.
Our Tell Us Once service will assist you with notifying many departments and services on our list so you will not need to contact them again. You will be registered for this service at your appointment by our Registrar.
Support for unpaid carers
Caring to the end offers practical, legal and financial information and advice on coping with grief and where to go for support after caring for a loved one at the end of life.
The website also offers tailored advice and guidance for various unpaid carers, including parent and young carers.
