Lodge Brothers Wills, Probate, or Lasting Power of Attorney

If you parent, sibling or partner were to pass away unexpectedly tomorrow, would you know what is legally required in terms of handing their death? Did you know that all deaths must be registered within 5 days, including weekend and bank holidays? This is just the first step on the list of things to do when dealing with an individual’s passing.

Once the event has been registered, a certificate of burial or an application for cremation, which ever the case is, must be processed. The certificate of burial must be provided to your funeral director after which you can begin the process of arranging the funeral or cremation. The funeral director should be registered and can help you to plan the funeral and will also be able to assist you how to make payment arrangements.

Bear in mind the updated Covid-19 restrictions which will be applicable at the time and how this will impact on the events of the funeral or the cremation. Scotland, Wales and Norther Ireland will have different restrictions for attending funerals and so these should be noted where applicable.

The UK government offers their “Tell us Once” service which allows a death to be reported to all government departments so as to save further bereavement for the family which could result from on-going reporting of the passing of their loved one. As yet, Ireland does not offer this service.

Other legal requirements include managing tax and benefits and applying for probate Sunbury. Applying for probate Shepperton is what must be done when requesting the legal right to deal with someone’s property, money and possessions, commonly referred to as their ‘estate’. If there is a Will, the grant of probate will be provided and letters of administration will need to be annexed. In the event that the individual concerned did not leave a Will, then letters of administration will be provided.

Lodge Brothers the family you can turn to… day or night | 020 8818 7725

It was 1969 when famed Swiss psychiatrist, Elizabeth Kübler-Ross wrote: “If all of us would make an all-out effort to contemplate our own death, to deal with our anxieties surrounding the concept of our death... perhaps there could be less destructiveness around us.” At some stage through our lives, we realise that death is inevitable and contemplating our own death is something, which can leave a person feeling incredibly fearful. Fearful of the future, the unknown, what happens to us when we die, what happens to the family we leave behind. The idea of death can be something that humans grapple within a way that makes them ponder the very existence of life in a very existential way.

As we become older, thinking about our death somehow becomes easier, in some part it’s because it becomes more inevitable, but also because we realise that there are many aspects surrounding our living, which need to be finalised in dying. Some families have to face the conversation sooner than others do which is something that can come when least expected. The rights of passage and funeral rituals, which we observe, are part of how we contemplate our own death. These traditions, attached to the end of life, are meaningful and important for us to plan, not just for our own contemplation but to allow those left behind to process their grief.

Lodge Brothers funeral directors Teddington have dedicated their professional lives to helping families to contemplate the death of someone close to them and understand all of the practicalities which the public by and large the general public would not have much awareness of. It can also be extremely therapeutic for someone who is contemplating their own passing, to provide insight into many of the aspects of the event, and by doing so can help them to feel more in control of what is to come. Not only will this help them but it will also help their family who will know what it is that the end days means to their loved one and how to lovingly allow them to have the dignity in death that we all deserve.

Lodge Brothers St. Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey Patient Affairs

As the world faces the unprecedented loss of life as the result of the COVID-19 Corona Virus, it brings it home that life can be fine one day and not the next. In the UK we are facing never before seen unexpected loss into the thousands as a result of this pandemic, and now is when we begin to understand just how fragile life truly is, especially for people with underlying health conditions.

When there is a death in the family there is not the possible amount of preparation a person can do which will lessen the effects that it has on the remaining members of the family, especially and most severely when the loss is unexpected and not anticipated. Studies have shown that depending on the nature of death, the ripple effects will be felt in different ways for different people, at different psychological levels for varying periods of time. Tragic loss can occur when least expected in the form of accidental deaths, suicide, late-stage miscarriage and stillbirth, and still more unthinkable scenarios involving children, young adults, and generally, physically healthy individuals which can leave any person wondering “why them” and “why now”. Most of us hope that when our time comes, we will be privileged enough to go peacefully in our sleep, but the reality is that this is not often simply not the case.

By the time a person is infected with the virus, it can still take 2 – 14 days for symptoms to manifest during which time a person may pass it on to countless and untold numbers of other people. As a community, the time has come to take all precautions and stick together while staying positive and sanitized. But when all else fails and someone in your family succumbs, there is support waiting just down the road from every hospital. Lodge Brothers are located as close as physically possible to the patient affairs Chertsey linked to the local hospital.

Most of the time, funeral arrangements will begin at the same time and within the same timeframe.

Lodge Brothers are continuously improving our location coverage to ensure our availability wherever our clients need us. In our Lodge Brothers area, there are Patient Affairs Ealing as well as branches across London and South East, allowing us to help and support you as soon as possible.
