Dealing with the death of a loved one is one of the hardest things you will ever do, both emotionally and in terms of the administration that comes with someone passing away.
The emotional impact of your loss is going to be keenly felt for a long time and initially you will probably find it hard to deal with the day-to-day things, simply because they will feel strangely mundane.
So adding to that the sometimes complex process of dealing with the estate of the person who is no longer with us is a double blow.
Unfortunately, once a loved one has passed away, there is a fair amount of administration that needs to be taken care of, starting with the registration of the death, organising a funeral and informing the myriad of people who then need to be told about the death.
It can be difficult to know where to start and our free guide is designed to provide you and your family with a useful source of information to help support you through this incredibly hard time with the least amount of difficulty, based on our personal experiences and professional expertise of dealing with our own families and clients.
We hope you find this of use and would be only too happy to answer any questions you may have when going through this process.
