I provide some support to an adult with learning difficulties. She has been seeing a guy for about 20 years who died at the weekend. She was not living with him. His family have been making it difficult for her to see him or contact him whilst he was ill and now have not given her any details in order that she may pay her last respects. Does she as a non family member have any rights at all? Is there any way she can find out who will be handling the funeral and pay her last respects if the family want to stop her? I think I already know the answer and that she has no rights . I am rather hoping I am wrong. Can anyone advise.
I dont want to discuss specifics here due to the sensitive nature.
