The first step to take when a death occurs is to have a doctor issue a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death
There are many scenarios you may face when a death occurs, you will need to be issued with a death certificate in each case before you can organise the funeral.
You can request as many certificates of death as you need because you will require an official copy when informing others of the passing of the deceased. It is best to collect these copies when you get the original death certificate, as requesting copies later will take longer, and is more expensive.

We ensure you know all of the details required so you feel comfortable dealing with this first stage and know how to register the death.
