If somebody dies either at home or in hospital it is obviously a difficult and traumatic time for everyone close to them. Unfortunately at this time there are a lot of important things which need to be done. Many people find dealing with these unfamiliar legal responsibilities at such a difficult time can be upsetting and confusing.
If you need advice on what to do at this time either the doctor or an undertaker may be able to help. There is also a very useful booklet produced by social services available from the surgery.
