Practical Advice to Help You make Informed Decisions When a Person Dies

Here, at Albert E. Hicks we provide informative and practical advice to help make the planning of a funeral as stress free as possible.

It is important to seek practical advice when a person dies. This will ensure you are fully prepared to deal with the planning process and funeral service.
The staff we employ are all fully qualified and will be able to advise and assist you on all aspects involved.

Our Practical Advice pages include advice on the following issues:

What to do first

The death of a loved one is a stressful time for close family and friends. The onset of grief and the tasks that need to be addressed can be overwhelming.

Our page about What to do First provides informative advice about the initial procedures that need to be tackled. Such as, what happens immediately after a death, information regarding registering a death and then arranging a funeral.

People to Inform

There are many authorities and organisations that need to be informed following a death. Our page about People to Inform provides practical advice about who needs to be informed soon after a death has occurred. The list is extensive and not exhaustive.

The number of people to be informed will vary from person to person, depending on how many official and non-official contacts they have.

Making Arrangements

There are many arrangements that need to be made to ensure a funeral meets the wishes of the deceased and their family.

Our page about Making Arrangements provides an overview of the aspects involved. Our friendly and professional staff are always on hand to provide advice and support and will guide you through the whole process.
