what to do when someone close to you dies
contact the funeral director

The first thing to do would be to contact a Funeral Director. Here at Samuel Gumbs we provide a consistent professional and personal service for bereaved families. We are here to help and guide families throughout the grieving period by assisting with organising the funerals of their loved ones by providing a consistent high level of competent service throughout the process and beyond.

register the death

You must register the death HERE within 5 days (8 days in Scotland), including weekends and bank holidays. You will get a ‘certificate for a burial’ to give to the funeral director, or an application for cremation which you need to complete and give to the crematorium.
You must do one of these before the funeral can take place.

help & support

We offer a 24 hour service, 365 days a year. Don't hesitate to call us if someone has died and you require help and support
