5. Information You Will Need To Provide
When registering the death of your dearly departed, the registrar will talk to you, in private, about the deceased and will discuss the following:
  • Date and place the death occurred
  • Full name, including surname, of the deceased (including the maiden name if the deceased was married)
  • The occupation or, if the deceased was a married woman or widow, the full name and occupation of her husband
  • The regular address or residence of your loved one
  • If your loved one was married, you will need to date of birth of the surviving widow or widower
  • Whether or not your loved one was in receipt of a pension or allowance/benefit from public funds other than state
In addition to the above, the registrar will hand you a Green Form (Certificate for Burial or Cremation). This form will allow the body of your loved one to be released in order for the funeral to take place. You will also be given a White Form (Certificate of Registration of Death). This form is for the Department of Work and Pensions, formerly known as the DSS and is free of charge to obtain. The Job Centre Plus will assist you with this to a certain degree as they will terminate further pension payments.

Once the Coroner has been informed of the death, either your chosen Funeral Director, or the Coroners’ Office will advise you on what steps to take next.

Often, it is not necessary for a post-mortem examination to take place, as there is generally sufficient evidence regarding the cause of death of the deceased. However, if your loved one has passed away suddenly, or for those with a suspected occupational illness, a post-mortem examination will be required. A post-mortem is also known as an ‘autopsy’.
