Bereavement Services

Losing someone close to you can be very painful. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of emotions and dealing with the practicalities that a death involves can seem very distressing and overwhelming.

 
The Bereavement Services web pages have been developed to provide you with what we feel is key information that you may need to know in relation to a cremation or burial taking place, or if you need to organise one. It also gives details of options associated with the Service and in the time that follows.
 
Bereavement Services aim to provide a quality service which meets the needs of our customers. You have the right, under the Charter for the Bereaved, to request to inspect our records and to be shown around our premises. Prior notice should be given wherever possible when such a request is made to avoid interruption of our normal service provision.
 
The death should be registered as soon as possible after the death, certainly within 8 days of the death.  The registration be carried out by:
 
  • Any relative of the deceased, or;
  • Any person present at the death, or;
  • The deceased’s executor or other legal representative, or;
  • The occupier, at the time of death, of the premises where the death took place or;
  • Any other person having knowledge of the particulars to be registered.
