What to do when someone dies

It can be a confusing time following a death and difficult to know what you need to do first, especially if this is the first time you are experiencing it. 

There are many procedures that will need to be undertaken. What needs to happen first will depend on the circumstances of the death and whether the person died in hospital, at home, a public place or overseas. This will also affect the type of documentation that you will be given.
