A popular reading that reminds us that even if it may not seem like it, God has a plan for everyone. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Thank You so much for taking care of Dad and ensuring he was given the farewell that he deserved. The support that you gave to us was greatly appreciated at this difficult time.

Registration and Death Certificates.You will need to collect the ‘Medical Certificate of Cause of Death’ which the GP has signed from the doctors’ surgery or hospital bereavement office. When you have it (or know that you will have it), call the registrars’ office in the area where the death occurred and make an appointment to register the death. Make sure you take this Medical Certificate with you. If you are unable to visit the registrar in the area where the death occurred, ask for a registration ‘By Declaration’. This relies on the Royal Mail or courier so allow extra time for this to take place. The Registrar will issue Death Certificates, which cost £11 each. You might need 3-5 copies to send to the bank, solicitors etc., depending on the complexity of the estate.
How long do I have to register a death?Deaths in England, Wales and Northern Ireland should be registered within five days. If this is not possible, for example you were out of the country when your loved one died, you must at least have made the appointment and informed the Registrar.
How soon can the funeral take place after death?It is best to allow seven to ten days for a cremation; five days does not allow for unforeseen delays, but can be done. In particular circumstances – as required by certain religious faiths, burial can take place within 24 hours of death.
