Detail

The death of a relative or friend is always distressing. It can be even harder if the death happens abroad, the circumstances are unknown or if the death is being investigated as murder or manslaughter. This guidance explains what you need to do if you are bereaved through murder or manslaughter overseas, and what support the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) can offer you. The information in this guide complements the Guide for Bereaved Families.
