G Andrews & Son Funeral Directors Portsmouth


Many people carry life insurance. When applicable, you should contact the deceased’s insurance company as soon as possible to notify them of the death.

You will be asked to produce the policy and a Certified Copy of the Death Certificate (obtainable from the Registrar’s office). Some insurance companies have their own particular extract and you should advise the registrar of the insurance company’s name to ensure that the correct certificate is prepared. One copy per company is normally sufficient and photocopies of the document may be acceptable. The insurance company will pay once satisfied that the claim is valid. The time this takes will vary depending upon the complexities of the claim.
