A subject that can be difficult to talk about but which will happen to all of us is death. Understandably, it is something we don’t like to think about, whether it is about our loved ones or indeed ourselves. When someone has died, their death needs to be registered with the registrar. Once this is done other organisations and government departments need to be informed. West Sussex County Council operate the ‘The Tell Us Once’ service which makes this process as smooth as possible. While we expect death in old age and can plan for it, there is nothing worse than losing a child.
