Who should help with the burial arrangements

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In case of a death in a family, for example the father dies, then who is responsible for fulfilling the requirements such as bringing kafan, digging the grave, making arrangements for the guests to sit and stay, and so on? Because the near ones such as the wife, sons and daughters of the deceased are in grief, so they are not in a position to make necessary arrangements.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
