Here at Roger Llewellyn Hughes Funeral Services we understand that suffering a family bereavement can be distressing and sometimes dificult at a time when most people feel least able to manage. We are here to help, advise and assist in any way we can.
Below are listed the important informationa and steps to be taken in the event of a bereavement. This information is intended as a guide, as different circumstances may or may not arrise. Should you be unsure of anything then please contact our office or consult a qualified advisor.
When someone dies there are three things you must do in the first few days:
1. Obtain A Medical Certificate:
You can obtain this from a Doctor (Your GP or at a hospital if the death occurred there) you will need the certificate to register the death. You may also need the Deceased’s Medical Card and/or Birth Certificate.
2. Register The Death:
You must register the death with the Registrar of Births, Marriages and Deaths in the district where the death occurred. You need to do this within five days of the death (unless it has been referred to the coroner). You will then get the documents you need to arrange the funeral.
3. Arrange The Funeral:
Our company has served the local community for over three generations and because we appreciate the difficulties of bereavement, we aim to provide a personal twenty-four hour service, three hundred and sixty five days a year.
