Arrange a Memorable Tribute for Your Loved One

We understand that losing a loved one can be a challenging and stressful time. We are here to assist you in navigating through the process of arranging a funeral, guiding you step-by-step on what needs to be done in the days and weeks following the death.

There are three critical things that you must do in the first few days after someone dies:

How it Works

Getting the Medical Certificate

Before a death can be formally registered, a doctor must issue a medical certificate that states the cause of death. In a hospital, a hospital doctor usually issues this, who will hand the certificate to you in a sealed envelope addressed to the Registrar of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. If the person has not been seen by a hospital doctor, their GP may issue a certificate instead.

Registering the Death

If the death has been reported to a coroner (Procurator Fiscal in Scotland), you cannot register the death until the coroner gives permission. Otherwise, you can register the death at a local Registry Office or online with When you visit the registrar, they will be as helpful as possible in registering the death. They will require specific information about the deceased, including their date and place of death, full name, date and place of birth, occupation, and details of their spouse or civil partner.

Arranging the Funeral

Funeral costs may include funeral director fees, disbursements or third-party costs, local authority burial or cremation fees, and celebrants or clergy fees. Funeral directors may provide a quote that includes all these costs.

Paying for a Funeral

The funeral is usually paid for by the person/people making the arrangements. However, it can also be paid for through a financial scheme the person had, such as a pre-paid funeral plan or an insurance policy, by other family members, or friends, or with money from the person's estate. We can help you through this process and deal with as much of the paperwork as you would like us to, in order to support you and your family during this difficult time.
