Practical steps


Step No.4
People to inform


Various people will need to know about the death, including:

  • The family doctor, if the deceased died in hospital
  • The local Inland Revenue office
  • The local Social Security office to cancel allowances, benefits, etc.
  • Their employer
  • Providers of utilities in their name, such as Gas, Electricity, etc.


Thinking through the person’s life will help you remember others who will want to know and perhaps attend the funeral – maybe their trade union, a club they were a member of, people who shared hobbies or a charity they supported.

If any children are affected by the death, their teacher should be told straight away.
