When a partner dies – a helpful guide

The death of a spouse or partner is always a distressing and difficult event. Suddenly, amid the grief and shock, there are dozens of things that need to be done, ranging from organising the funeral to returning the deceased’s driving licence. This guide offers a helpful overview of what needs to be done.

The affairs of any individual can be complex and wide-ranging, so a guide like this cannot claim to be exhaustive, but the general principles apply to everyone and we hope that it will provide a useful summary of the many things to consider.

Remember, the Fiske team is available to support you and your family however we can. This guide includes details of specific things we can help with. Do contact us if you need our help.
