Once you have all the relevant certificates you can start to talk to your funeral director at Douglas Mercer & Son Funeral Directors to make detailed arrangements of the funeral itself. Obviously we’d be happy to talk this through with you informally whilst waiting for the documents.
At this stage it’s worth checking if there is a prepaid funeral plan in place as this will indicate the wishes of the person who has died as well as cover most of the costs involved.
If there is a will now is a good time to contact the executor to see if any instructions were left regarding the funeral. If you need support regarding probate we can help you find a reputable probate specialist.
