    The delay was due to not having the death certificate the bank will not accept our details without the correct paperwork, we have already got an appointment Monday morning with the bank and straight afterwards if the is any wrong doing the matter will be passed straight to the police.

    The only concern now is if the step daughter has approached other companies such as pensions etc

    Yes agreed we may have the address but will be passing the information straight to the police, we are just hoping she has not squirreled away his monies or tried to claim funds from other places.

    Ask the Bank to print out a list of direct debiticon authorities and standing orders that have been registered on the account within say the last 5 years. From the list, you might gain Insurance company names, reference numbers etc. Helpful if you are trying to track down any policies he might have been paying.

    Remember to take with you any identity papers e.g passport, your original birth certificate, marriageicon cert showing any change of name. This is so the Bank can see who they are dealing with.

    That's not necessarily evidence of any wrongdoing, I wouldn't make too much of it. A step daughter can reasonably call herself a daughter if she was treated as a 'child of the family' under family law, and to legally be a relative who can register a death. The rules on who can report a death don't distinguish between blood relatives and non-blood relatives. Any 'relative' may qualify to report a death (if thev meet the other requirements).

    But the police can confirm the death had occurred even if you don't have a copy of the certificate, and can start the investigation.
    Not having the certificate doesn't mean you couldn't report events to the police!

    If the bank has already told you the card was used after death: that is enough. The police can liase with the hospital (to confirm the death) and with the bank (to confirm the transaction after death).

    You've been told the police are the correct agency to deal with this, and they have powers you don't. You trying to investigate instead of them is just adding delay.

    Well i have just finished a call to the police and reported the problem, they have said that someone will be calling to our house to take down a statement also on Monday. I have explained the situation and they have confirmed that this person cannot withdraw funds from a bank account after they have died as they are not authorized. They have also confirmed they will also look into passed transactions as well.

    Well totally shocked, our fathers bank account has been emptied and in fact overdrawn and not enough funds to help towards the funeralicon, the step daughter has been with drawing funds over the last few months every day, even buying from shops as well. on closer reading some days she has withdraw funds from different cash points all at the same time, our father died on 28th of last month and she was withdrawing funds after he had died. Overall she has taken over 8,000.00 and thats not including the shopping transactions.

    We took all the bank statements highlighted the ATM transactions and other transactions such as Paypoint, KFC, Macdonalds, Wine shop, mobile top ups, Tesco looking at the transactions its clear clear she was using the account as her own, comment from police was she may have had consent ? however all this was going n when he was in hospital.

    Example of ATM

    27/7/17 - ATM Natwesticon 20.00
    27/7/17 - ATM halifaxicon 100.00
    27/7/17 - ATM HSBCicon 20.00
    27/7/17 - ATM Natwest 100.00
    27/7/17 - ATM Noremachine 20.00
    27/7/17 - ATM RBSicon 100.00

    We have been told if she has taken all the funds they are gone, personally it`s now about whats right and wrong, just hope the police take this issue to hand.

    Devils advocate here.

    How do you know your late father didn't give her permission to use the card or cards when he was alive?

    Although after death she should of stopped as the asset's become part of an estate.
