I'm my mother's next of kin since my father died, and also her attorney since she lost capacity to deal with her affairs, and executor under her will. When she went into a care home, that was what was noted on her records. I've dealt with her finances, decisions about DNR etc. She died recently, those details would have been passed on by the care home, So who does the Registrar phone about registering the death? My brother, of course.

Yes, everyday sexism in its most insidious form, because it's not even intentional. Just something taken for granted without even thinking about it: a man is automatically the senior person, the 'in charge' person, not the support person.
Condolences on your Mum's death, Arobase.
