Request a copy birth, marriage or death certificate

Copy death certificate

To issue a copy death certificate, we will need the deceased's:

  • Full name
  • Date of death
  • Age at death or date of birth
  • Place of death (for example, name of nursing home or hospital)
  • Home address, if different from place of death
  • Occupation

The cost for each non-urgent certificate is £11.00. The national target for issuing non-urgent certificates is 15 working days from the date of request.

The service is not currently able to offer an urgent 24 hour certificate service.

Please note due to Covid-19 certificate orders will not be completed within the published timescales. We remain committed to processing orders as fast as we can, however please do not contact us for updates as we will be unable to confirm when your order will be completed.
