In partnership with Macmillan, Relate are offering free relationship counselling to anyone affected by or living with cancer.  This begins in July 2016 and will be initially offered from our Relate centres in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

Cancer and its treatment can have a big impact on your relationships with your partner, family, and on your sexual relationship too. We can help with issues such as:

  •     how to talk to your friends and family about what is happening to you
  •     changes and problems with relationships because one of you has cancer
  •     difficulties talking to and supporting each other
  •     problems talking to children, or parents and other relatives about cancer
  •     challenges in getting ‘back to normal’, as a couple or family, when cancer treatment is
  •     finished
  •     the impact on intimacy and sex life resulting from surgery, treatment, altered body image, tiredness or anxiety.


If you or a family member are living with or are recovering from cancer, or you are caring for someone with cancer, and would like to meet a counsellor you can ring Relate Birmingham directly on 0121 643 1638 and ask for the Macmillan service. You can also be referred by your cancer nurse, doctor or your GP.

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.
2. Contact a funeral director.
3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).
4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.
5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.
2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation
Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
