Registering A Death
You will need to make an appointment to register a death. This must be done within 5 working days (unless the death has been reported to the coroner) and in the district Register Office where the death occurred.

What the Registrar will need to know:

The date and place of death
The deceased’s last usual address
The deceased’s first names and surname ( and maiden name where appropriate)
The deceased’s date and place of birth (town and country if born in England, and country if born abroad)
The deceased’s occupation ( or last occupation if retired ), and the name and occupation of their spouse, if applicable.
Whether the deceased was receiving a pension or allowance from public funds
If the deceased was married, the date of birth of the surviving widow or widower

Coming to terms with loss

Losing someone you care about can be one of life’s most difficult experiences. There are no easy answers when trying to help a bereaved family to come to terms with their loss. Every situation is unique and people act in very different ways.

At Peter Coyne Funeral Directors, we believe we have an important responsibility to care for our families, not just by offering support during the funeral, but especially through the difficult days that may follow.

We have available a booklet, “ Now What ? ” written by Dr Bill Webster, a grief councillor who understands grief not just in theory, but from his own personal experience.

Dr Webster highlights many different aspects involved in coping with bereavement. We trust it will help you realise that the difficult times you may experience and the emotions you face are natural, and that your grief is normal.

If you would like to receive a copy of this booklet please contact one of our branches and we will forward one to you free of charge.

Grief support whenever you need it

Dr Bill Webster provides ongoing grief support at his web site . In those painful moments when you feel overwhelmed with your emotions and your grief, empathy and encouragement are offered. Even in the middle of the night, when you cannot sleep, support is offered in the form of something to read or a video programme to watch.
