Not everything can be done straight away, particularly as this is a very difficult time for people to cope with, but it is important to:

  • Make sure everyone who needs to know is told
  • Arrange to see the deceased’s Solicitor and read the Will as soon as possible, this will tell you if there are any special funeral requests and who the Executors are
  • Start arranging the funeral
  • Collect all the information and documents you need
