What to do when someone dies


The compassionate team at Somers & Currid Independent Funeral Directors is here to help you with the practical matters required at this difficult time. It is usual for people to be unsure of what to do after a loved one's passing. Our professional funeral directors will be able to guide you through each step and we will ensure the funeral or cremation service is as stress-free and comforting as possible.

Please contact us as soon as the Doctor confirms that they can issue the Cause of Death Certificate.

Our experienced staff will then take you through the first steps and can arrange a meeting at our Stirling or Callender funeral homes or elsewhere if you would prefer.

We will also recommend that you use the 'Tell Us Once' service which will report the death to all the necessary Government organisations.
