All deaths must now be registered with the Local Authority using a Green Form, which our staff will provide upon request. We can assist you in completing this form should you require help. A death cannot be registered without this Green Form.
The following information will be required:
A death can be registered at your local town hall or at the closest town hall to the place of death. On registration, you will handed two documents. One will be the GRO 21, which is the council permission for either burial or cremation to take place. This will be required by your funeral director before the council will allow the funeral to take place. The other will be the Death Certificate. Many organisations, such as banks, building societies, insurance companies, etc require an Original death certificate to be provided, so it is recommended that you purchase at least three copies of this document. It is less expensive to do this when registering the death, than returning to get extra copies at a later date.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us. We are here to help.
