The Death Certificate
The Death Certificate is a certified copy of the entry in the death register. The registrar can let you have a Death Certificate if you want one, but you will have to pay a fee. You may need a Death Certificate for the will and for any pension claims, insurance policies, savings bank certificates and premium bonds. You may wish to ask for several copies of the Death Certificate straight away as the price increases if you need one later on. The registrar may not be able to give you them all straight away and may ask you to call back or ask for postage so that they may be sent to you.
If you go to a register office other than the one for sub-district where the death took place the required certificates may be ordered at the same time and will be sent to you.
