It would be cancelled and you would have to apply for a credit card in your own name

The bank would need to be advised of the death, and they would sort it out at that time.

Thanks Barry and Canary appreciate your help

It's always a good idea to have a credit card in your own name, even if you just use it a few times a year and pay it off in full every month.  It wouldn't cost you anything and you have an emergency back up should you need it.
