Publisher's Summary

The death of a partner in later life entails a host of unfamiliar changes and many tasks such as dealing with probate and tax, at a time when people are perhaps least well equipped to deal with them.

This book is intended for the partner left behind by the 700,000-plus people who die in the UK each year. It covers everything from how to prevent identity theft of the deceased, set up a personal filing system and write a business letter, to personal safety and how to iron on a pocket!

Topics include:
formal procedures after a death and dealing with probate
estimating and reducing funeral costs
money matters - dealing with banks, building societies, and other institutions
new skills and routines - shopping, cooking, DIY
personal relationships
downsizing, holidays
sample business letters
checklists to help you get organised
useful addresses

    "Considerate and Practical"

    This is a useful guide to help people through a difficult time. The narrator has a very nice tone to his voice and as well as acknowledging emotional issues, takes you through various practical points which need to be looked at.

    "A very useful hand book at a stressful time"

    Immediately after bereavement an individual usually flounders dealing with unaccustomed situations. This little book is an invaluable aid and guide where most people are dealing with problems that they have never dealt with before and don't generally know who to ask.

    "Essential Information"

    The information provided in this book is so important for those going through such bereavement.
    The narration was empathetic, but not sympathetic. Exactly the right tone for this subject matter. I really enjoyed listening to his calming voice.
