When A Person Dies
When someone dies it can be an emotionally distressing time, potentially overwhelming should the responsibility fall on you or someone close to you to carry out the wishes of the person who has died.
At this point it is not uncommon for people to be unsure of what to do when considering the many steps that need to be taken following bereavement.
This is where we can help you through the initial stages offering caring support and advice on things you may need to think about leading up to and following the funeral.
When a person dies, someone has to deal with their affairs. This is called ‘administering the estate’. In addition to arranging the funeral there are other legal duties and responsibilities that fall on Personal Representatives (an Executor in a Will or an Administrator if there is no Will). You can contact Gemma Sampson of Sampson Solicitors (www.sampson-solicitors.co.uk) to discuss these legal duties and responsibilities.
