What happens during the registration?
All death registrations are private interviews. The registrar enters the deceaseds details onto the computer and then prints out the register page for you to check and then sign. A green form will be issued by the registrar for you to pass on and allow the undertaker to arrange the funeral. (Sometimes this will come from the Coroner.)
A registration or notification of death form will also be issued for social security purposes.
The Registrar can provide (at a cost) as many copy death certificates as you may need – all sorts of people will require copies – banks, building societies, insurance companies, shares etc etc, and as they are much cheaper on the day we recommend you buy plenty.
