Registration during Covid-19
How it Works.....
INFORMATION TO BE COLLECTED FOR REGISTRATION
Once a Registrar has registered the death via telephone, the following will take place:
Following the registration, death certificates are charged at £11.00 each. Where you are using a death certificate to process financial matters for example; Banks, Building societies, Pension schemes etc an original will be required. It is good to have your debit card ready so these can be ordered straight away for you and avoid any delays in dealing with the affairs of the deceased.
We at Butterfly Funeral Services DO NOT need a copy of the death certificate.
This service informs local and central government departments about the death and reduces the number of phone calls you need to make. The Registrar will post or email you information about this service along with a unique code to allow you to access this free service via telephone or online.
If the death is sudden or unexpected your loved one will be taken the the chapel of rest of the duty Funeral Director called upon by the emergency services. This is where they will be cared for until you call Butterfly Funeral Services and arrange to collect the deceased and bring them into our care.
The Coroner will look in to the medical background of the person that has died and decide if a post-mortem is needed.
The Coroner will contact the next of kin before anything goes ahead so you know what to expect.
Please be aware depending on the circumstances of the death and the outcome of the investigation this could cause a delay to the funeral.
