When someone dies, either at home or in hospital, it is obviously a very difficult and traumatic time for every one close to them. Unfortunately, at this time there are a lot of important things which need to be done i.e. obtaining a death certificate, registering the death etc.
Many people find dealing with these unfamiliar legal responsibilities, at such a difficult time, can be upsetting and confusing. To assist you in this you can obtain a booklet from the surgery, which has been issued by Social Services. If you need more advice on what to do at this time, either your doctor or undertaker may be able to help.
