Registering the death
If the death is not referred to a coroner, you need to make an appointment with the Registrar of Births and Deaths within 5 days.
The Registrar will give you:
- A certificate for a burial or cremation (known as the green form), which you give to the funeral director.
- A certificate of registration of death, form BD8. Which you may need to show to the Department for Works and Pensions.
- A death certificate. It is a good idea to ask for extra copies, each asset holder will require sight of this. There will be a minimal charge for each copy.
