This service is currently only available for deaths that occurred after 1 January 2020

Our priority service is currently unavailable.

Our standard service costs £11 per certificate.

We'll send your copy certificate by second class post within 2 working days of receiving your application. We're unable to track deliveries, so unfortunately we can't guarantee how long it will take.

If you need it urgently, we can take orders over the phone. Just call 0300 123 4045 and ask for a callback to order a death certificate.


What you'll need to apply

  • Date and place where the death took place.
  • The name of the person involved.

If you only have the GRO reference number, you must apply to the General Register Office or call them on 0300 123 1837.
