Products and services

To meet the needs of our customers, we provide a range of certificates, products, ceremonies and information services that help establish a range of legal entitlements.

Registry offices closed - delays expected

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, we have closed our Registry offices and there will be a delay in our regular processing times.  If you need a certificate urgently, use our online services and select ‘priority’.

We’re working hard to support our customers during this challenging time and thank you for your patience.

A funeral director will normally register a death and apply for a death certificate on your behalf.
