This is the most confusing and often the hardest part of experiencing the death of someone close to you. There is a lot of running around to do, people to inform and forms to complete. The main thing is not to panic; Doves Funeral Directors are the experts and can help you every step of the way.
We suggest that you download a copy of our ‘What to do when someone dies’ brochure or ask us to send you a copy, this will explain in detail everything you need to know whether the death has occurred in a nursing home, in hospital, or at home.
The brochure also covers other circumstances such as sudden death, if the Coroner is involved, or if the person has died outside of England.
