Registration procedures

1. A death should be registered in the district in which it has occurred, within 5 days. The doctor's Certificate of Death should be taken to the Registrar's Office with, if possible, the Medical Card and Birth Certificate of the Deceased.

2. The Registrar will need the following information about the deceased

pale arrow  a) Full name
pale arrow  b) Date and place of birth
pale arrow  c) Date and place of death
pale arrow  d) Marital status
pale arrow  e) Home address
pale arrow  f) Last occupation (even if retired)
pale arrow  g) If married at date of death – date of birth of surviving partner
pale arrow  h) If female and either married or widowed, maiden name and husband's full name and occupation

3. The Registrar will issue a GREEN CERTIFICATE which is required by us before the funeral can take place.

4. If the death is referred to the Coroner, it would be advisable to contact us so that provisional arrangements can be made prior to the Coroner giving permission for the registration and the funeral to take place.
