Every situation is unique so please don’t hesitate to contact us for advice. We will make arrangements to take the person who has died into our care. We will then organise to talk to you about funeral arrangements at a time that best suits you.
Firstly, we will ask for some personal details of the person who has died including details of the Next of Kin. We will then discuss all options during our arrangements once you are ready to do so.
- A death in Scotland must be registered within 8 days
- When a death certificate is issued, the doctor will email the certificate to the local registrar.
- The registrar will contact the Next of Kin and the registration will be completed over the phone.
- The registrar offers a ‘tell us once’ service to inform most government organisations.
