Frequently Asked Questions
Whether the death of your loved one was expected or not, we understand that it’s an extremely distressing time for all of the family.
Knowing the steps you need to take following the passing of your friend or family member can help take some of the pressure off, allowing you to grieve.
Handling the situation logically and efficiently will help make the process much less stressful, and our expert funeral directors near Cheddar are here to bear the majority of the burden.
The steps you need to take will vary depending on your specific circumstances, but typically you’ll be expected to inform the authorities of the death within 5 days of receiving the medical cause of death from the doctors.
Once your loved one’s death has been registered and you’ve received the certificate or ‘green form’, you should pass it over to your funeral director as soon as possible so that they can start making the arrangements.
Normally, it takes one to two weeks to arrange a funeral following the loss of a loved one.
In some cases, it could take a little longer – if a coroner is involved, for example – or a funeral can be arranged in a matter of days if a pre-paid plan was in place prior to their death.
Timelines vary across the board and will depend on your circumstances. Although there’s nothing to say that you can’t begin making rough plans as soon as possible following a bereavement, our funeral directors close to Cheddar are only able to help once we’ve received all the relevant paperwork from you.
If you have any questions or concerns, or you’d like our help with planning the perfect send-off for your beloved friend or family member – don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly funeral directors today!
