Hello, my name is Marcus.
Firstly I am sorry for your families loss.
In honesty it is not an easy question to answer without knowing the full circumstances.
On the face of it the police cannot prevent a friend going into the house unless the death was unexpected and enquiries are being made in which case it maybe justifiable to not allow access to the friend.
Do you know the circumstances of the death.
What a dreadful ordeal for your son.
It may well be that the basis of the refusal of the police for a friend to enter is that on the face of it the death at this time is unexplained.
Your son should however make it clear to the police that he would like support from his friend - that is not unreasonable in the circumstances.
