Registering a Death

A death must be registered by law in the district within which the death occurs. We can tell you where the relevant office is.

Under normal circumstances, the Death Certificate should be taken to the Registrar with, if possible, the deceased’s medical card. An apponitment to register should be made within 5 days of the date of death.

Who can Register a Death?

• Any relative of the deceased
• Any person present at death
• The occupier of the house where the death occurs • The person arranging the funeral

The procedure for registering a death is a simple interview with the Registrar who will require the following information:

  1. date and place of birth and death;
  2. the full name of the deceased;
  3. home address of the deceased;
  4. the Marital status of the deceased; and
  5. if the deceased is female, her maiden name, if applicable, and her husband’s full name and occupation

The Registrar will issue a Green Certificate (Certificate for Burial or Cremation) which should be handed to us as soon as possible.
