The Registrar will then issue the following:
- A Green Certificate which is required by the Funeral Director for either Cremation or Burial
- A copy of the Certified Entry of Death (otherwise known as the Death Certificate). Additional copies of this may be obtained from the Registrar upon payment of the appropriate fee should they be required for legal purposes. The Registrar will advise on this.
- A White Certificate of Death, which is required should you wish to claim any NI Benefits. NB: should the death be notified to the Coroner and the funeral service is to be a Cremation, then Registration can be affected after the funeral – see the section on the Coroner for more details.
Once you have this documentation, you can bring it with you when we see us and we can organise the funeral for you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need any help.
