The Legal Requirements if Someone Dies

There are three things you must do in the first few days after someone dies:

  1. Get a medical certificate from a GP or hospital doctor. You will need this to register the death.
  2. Register the death within five days. You will then get the documents you need for the funeral.
  3. Arrange the funeral – contact Benedict Funeral Directors on 0800 634 4505 . Peter or Joseph will be pleased to help you.
