What to do after someone dies
There are 3 things that you need to do in the first few days after someone dies:
- Get a medical certificate from a doctor or hospital. You'll need this to register the death.
- Register the death within 5 days. Once registered, you'll then get the documents you need for the funeral.
- Arrange the funeral. You can do this yourself or ask a funeral director to help.
You can find more information about what to do after someone dies on the Gov.uk website.
