First Steps

There are 2 things you must do in the first few days after someone dies.

  1. Get a medical certificate from a GP or hospital doctor. You’ll need this to register the death.
  2. Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You’ll then get the documents you need for the funeral.

Once you have registered the death, we can handle all the arrangements for you.

What next?

Your next steps will depend on where the person died. More information can be found here
