Designing your death dossier (sounds gruesome but it is Halloween!)

Here is an aide memoire of what we need to sort in good time to help our executors and descendents.

Birth Certificate
Marriage Certificate
Divorce papers

Personal and family medical history
Power of Attorney
Authorisation to release health-care information
Living Will - Do Not Resuscitate note

Housing and land deeds
Proof of any loans/debts
Vehicle titles
Stock certificates, savings bonds, bank accounts
Tax returns

Life insurance policies
Pension details
List of safe-deposit boxes

Letter of instruction
List of relevant passwords
Names and addresses of relevant professions, such as solicitor, doctor 
Names and addresses of friends and others to inform

And, most importantly, a note of where all the above are stored
