Who to inform during the bereavement ceremony
There are a number of various companies and interested parties who need to be informed of the death, and others who we would recommend. We have complied a list as a guide:
Some of the above may need to be informed in writing and some may require a copy of the Death Certificate.
Before the Estate (anything belonging to the deceased) can be realised and distributed amongst any beneficiaries it may be necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate (if the Deceased left a Will) or Letters of Administration (if they didnt). Often it would be easier to ask a Solicitor or a Bank to deal with these formalities, however it is possible to administer an Estate personally, and the local Probate Office will be able to offer advice.
