What To Do When Somebody Dies

When someone dies either at home or in hospital, it is obviously a difficult time for everyone close to them. Unfortunately at this time there are a lot of important things which need to be done, such as obtaining a death certificate, registering a death etc.

Many people find dealing with these unfamiliar responsibilities can be upsetting and confusing. To help with this there is a DSS booklet available which contains a lot of useful information and advice. A copy can be obtained from the surgery.

If you need more advice on what to do at this time, either your doctor or undertaker may be able to help you.
