What to do when someone dies

10 Steps of Bereavement

A great tool to help families, executors and administrators discover what to do when someone dies. From the immediate steps to take, for example, registering the death, obtaining a death certificate, arranging a funeral, looking after dependents and pets or securing the property; to distributing the property or possessions of the deceased. If you are looking for more tools to do it yourself, our DIV Executor Toolkit gives you added tools and support.

DIV Executor Toolkit

In-depth, comprehensive, online ‘Do it Yourself’ service, giving you everything you need to ensure you have dealt with the estate in line with your responsibilities and legal liability as a personal representative. It also deals with much more than administering an estate. Including registering a death, arranging a funeral and other practical tasks. The DIY Executor Toolkit can be used whether a Grant of Representation (also known as the Grant of Probate, Administration or Confirmation) is required or not, and even if a Will was not left.
