Depending upon when and where the passing occurs

If someone dies in hospital, then the nursing staff will ensure that you or the next of kin are informed as soon as possible. Being in hospital does mean that the staff can help with the immediate practicalities. They will arrange for a doctor to certify the time, date and cause of death, enabling them to issue a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. Once you are in receipt of the Medical Certificate you will be required to register the death at your local Registrar’s Office.

Registration

Registration

The registration of a death should always take place as soon as possible and is usually carried out by a relative of the person who has died. If no relative is available then the registration can be carried out by any person who is present at the death, the occupier of the premises where the death occurred, or the person accepting responsibility for arranging the funeral. Whilst the death needs to be registered at a Registrar’s Office within five days, there is no need to rush there the next morning. Take your time to collect yourself and gather all the documents and information required, as this will make the process much easier for you.

Direct Cremations

Direct Cremations

A direct cremation is a simple, dignified option in which your loved one is cremated without a funeral service or ceremony. It is the perfect option for someone who would like a simple cremation. Sometimes known as an unattended cremation, by removing the service, the family of the deceased or those responsible for the arrangements can make substantial savings compared to traditional funeral costs.It is perfect for those who wish to commemorate their loved one in their own way. It offers you more flexibility, allowing you to pay a fair price for the services that are required, whilst avoiding the costs for services that you feel are not appropriate for you.
