What to do after someone dies

Plan If is about all parents putting plans in place for the sake of their children; it is not meant to be the best place to find information about what to do when someone dies. However, if thinking about what might happen after you or someone important dies has made you want to know more, there is useful information here which gives simple information on the basic stages of:

  • if a death is reported to a coroner
  • arranging a funeral
  • organisations you need to contact
  • dealing with taxes, benefits and probate.
