The Legal Requirements if Someone Dies
There are three things you must do in the first few days after someone dies:
- Get a medical certificate from a GP or hospital doctor. You will need this to register the death.
- Register the death within five days. You will then get the documents you need for the funeral.
- Arrange the funeral – contact Benedict Funeral on 0800 634 4505 .
