What to do when a loved one dies 

Whether its sudden, planned or natural causes, its always a difficult time for the family. Depending on the circumstances, the procedure on what to do changes.

  • Home - You will need to contact their GP or the NHS as soon as possible.

  • Hospital - The hospital staff should take care of the first part of the procedure. Contacting the Doctor in charge to verify the death and obtain a medical certificate.

  • Care Home - The care home staff should take care of the first part of the procedure. The death will need to be verified by a GP and medical practitioner in order to obtain a medical certificate.

  • Abroad - You will need to register your loved one death in the country they passed away. 

Registering the death

This will need to be done in the first 5 days unless you are in Scotland (8 days). You will need to contact the registrar office in the area of where the deceased passed away and make a appointment. 

You will need the medical certificate when attending your appointment. Once the appointment is complete, the registrar should provide you with the following:

  • Green GRO21 Certificate which allows a burial or cremation to take place.

  • Certificate of registration of death

  • Death certificate which you will need to pay for,

Obtaining a medical certificate

Who to inform

Below are a list of a few people and organisations that should be contacted as soon as possible:

  • Family and friends

  • Employer (if working)

  • Funeral Director/company (of your choosing)

  • Mortgage/Landlord provider 

  • Financial (Banks, Credit card company)

  • Pension provider

As well to this, you will also need to notify all government ​organisations. 

This will be one of the first things you will need to begin the process for the deceased. If they have passed away at an Hospital/care home, the hospital/care home will give you the certificate. If at home, call their GP.

Obtaining the medical certificate will only be delayed if there is a Corona inquest. Which is a legal inquiry.
