What to do when someone passes away

The death of a family member or loved one is something that virtually all of us will face at some stage of our lives. Regrettably, it may be something we must cope with more than on just one or two occasions. It is not a subject that most of us would wish to dwell on, so for the most part, many of us avoid giving thought to the subject. While this is entirely understandable, it means that people are often left unsure what to do when faced with the practicalities of a death.

When someone you have a level of responsibility towards passes away, there are certain requirements which must be met. Arrangements must be made for a doctor to confirm the passing and the cause of death. In cases of unexpected or sudden deaths, usually a second doctor is required to confirm the details. There will also be a requirement to officially register the death, which will require you to present certain documents and certification to the authorities.
