Hi all

When my dad died I had to register the death, because I had a better
qualification than his girlfriend, who was present at the death, even
though she tried to. He had no will, otherwise the girlfriend might have
been an executor, but even then I suspect the registrar would have
wanted the next of kin to do it, unless there was a good reason why not
(eg being abroad). Funeral Directors would not have a qualification as
such to register a death.
