When do I get a death certificate?

When do I get a death certificate?

This depends upon whether a post-mortem is carried out and an Inquest held. If a post-mortem was undertaken and an inquest held, the Coroner may issue an interim death certificate so that the family can deal with the deceased financial affairs. A final death certificate will only be issued once the Inquest has been concluded.

If the Coroner following a post-mortem decides not to hold a Inquest or if no post-mortem is held and the Coroner accepts the cause of death by a doctor, a death certificate can be issued to the register of death within 1-2 working days of being notified.
