Once the Medical Certificate has been issued the death should be registered, within five days, at the Registry Office in the sub-district where it occurred.

For information on where and how to register in Witshire, please click on the following link for more information.


On completion of registration, the registrar will issue the following:

  • A Certificate for Burial or Cremation – this is a green form which should be brought to us in order that arrangements for the funeral may proceed
  • A Certification of Registration of Death (form BD8) – this is for Social Security purposes in order that payment of pensions and allowances may be cancelled

If you require any assistance on registering a death, please do not hesitate to contact us.
