Registering a death:

The death should be registered in the district where the person died. The Registrar will receive all the necessary information directly from the surgery or hospital and will contact the next of kin to begin registering the death. We advise that you purchase several copies of the death certificate. Before going to register, make a note of how many organisations you will have to inform about the death, as they will each want to see a certified copy of the death certificate.
