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
The cost for each non-urgent certificate is £11
The national target for issuing non-urgent certificates is fifteen working days from the date of request.
For each urgent certificate the cost is £35
Urgent certificate orders can be made Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm by phone. Certificates are produced on or before the next working day and are sent by first class post. If the certificate is to be collected an appointment to do so will be offered.
The GOV.UK website offers some useful advice on what to do after someone dies.
