If your loved one passes away in a nursing or care home, the staff will notify you. In most cases, they will also notify the GP who will need to complete a death certificate.
Get in touch with us so we can make the necessary arrangements to collect your loved one and take them to our funeral home.
Once the doctor has certified the death and completed a medical certificate it must be registered at a Register Office.
In most cases, we do not need a copy of the death certificate, but banks, insurance companies, solicitors, and others may all need to have their own copy, so we recommend ordering a few.
In most cases, you will need to register the death within five days, and it is best to visit the Register Office in the area in which the person died. This can help avoid delays when requesting the necessary documents. If the Coroner is involved, you will be advised when to register the death.
A green form will be issued by the Registrar which is required for a funeral to take place. The Registrar will also issue you with a death certificate and as many original copies as you may need.
