Who can register the death?

A death must, by law, be registered within 5 days, normally in the registration district in which the death has occurred. We will be able to advise you as to the whereabouts of the relevant office. Under normal circumstances the ‘Medical Certificate’ (signed by a doctor) should be taken to the registrars with, if possible, the deceased’s ‘Medical Card’. The registrar will then issue the ‘Death Certificate’, a Certificate for Burial or Cremation (called the ‘green form’) for the Funeral Director and form BD8 relating to the DSS and state pension.

To avoid delays, it is best to go to the register office in the area in which the person has died. You can choose another register office, but it may take longer to get the necessary documents and this could delay the funeral arrangements.
