Deaths, funerals, burials & cremations

It is a time of great sadness and grieving when someone you know passes away. It is also a time when there are a number of steps that need to be taken. We offer support in dealing with the practical and emotional issues of death and bereavement.

Register a death

A death should be registered within five days in the registration district where it took place. Upon receipt of all required information a death certificate is issued by the registrar.
