WHEN A BEREAVEMENT OCCURS
If the death happens at home, phone your doctor to come and certify the death.
They will then tell you when the death certificate will be available.
If the death is sudden, the doctor may not be able to issue the certificate but will instead
ask the coroner to be involved.
After a death in hospital, a member of staff there will explain
to you when to collect the certificate and when the undertakers should arrive.
Phone your funeral directors and give him your instructions.
Later you can discuss funeral arrangements with him.
Go to the registrar of births and deaths (Ardevin) during office hours taking:
The death certificate
(get extra copies needed for closing bank accounts etc)
The NHS card
The pension book
The birth certificate (if possible)
You will be asked:
The full name of (and maiden name) of the deceased.
His/her place and date of birth.
His/her occupation (and the occupation of the widow(er).
