We have a dedicated bereavement support team who will assist you through your bereavement. We understand that the loss of a loved one can be a difficult and emotional time. The bereavement support officer will help you with many of the practical issues. These include making arrangements for you to collect the medical certificate of cause of death and any personal effects and valuables, as well as making an appointment for you to register the death. They can also help you make an appointment to visit the person who has died.
The bereavement support officers can be contacted on the following numbers from Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm (except bank holidays).
