Topic - Legal responsibilities after death

AndyB123 - on 03 Oct 2012
Sadly my Mother in law died yesterday and already we are embroiled in a legal dispute about who is responsible for the arrangement of the funeral, and who will cover the costs.

My wife has not spoken to her mum for 2 years, and has not seen her for 7, the same for her only brother.

Her mother lived with a guy for the past 7 years (the time difference is related), who, according to the Housing Dept. is listed as her Partner. He is denying all responsibility, claiming they were companions, and refusing to take care of any arrangements or financial burden, citing that her two children are next of kin.

My question is over the legal definition of Next of Kin,and Partner,and whether legally a partner is next of kin.
