After the death is registered

Once the death has been registered, you may need to:

Arrange the funeral

Order copies, make changes or legalise the death certificate

Tell organisations about the death

Organise affairs

Check if you are entitled to bereavement benefits

Check and update your personal affairs

After the funeral

The register office must have confirmation and log that a funeral has taken place.

The crematorium or cemetery authority do this by completing and returning the green form to the register office once the funeral has taken place.
