You will need to take the “Medical certificate of cause of death” with you to the Registrars and provide the full name (including maiden name for a married lady), address and date of birth. You will also need the details of where and when they died.
If at all possible the deceased’s Birth and Marriage Certificate and Medical Card should also be taken.
The Registrar will issue you with certified copies of the Death Certificate which may be needed by relevant parties, including banks, solicitors for probate, life insurance etc. They will issue a green “Certificate for Burial or Cremation”. This is the certificate we will need as your funeral director for completing the burial or cremation paperwork.
They will also issue a form to notify the Department of Work and Pensions of the death.
