If the deceased has made a will, this may contain important information about their wishes for their funeral. Once you have registered the death at the Registrars Office and collected the green form, your funeral director will be able to make detailed arrangements for the funeral in accordance with the familys wishes.
The Coroner's officers will give advise what to do in this instance and your funeral director will liaise with the Coroner on your behalf.
You may want to discuss the funeral with your local priest or other religious representative, or you may prefer for the funeral director to do this on your behalf. Some families request non-religious funerals and details of these arrangements should be discussed with your funeral director.http://www.dwp.gov.uk/
