Fakenham & District Funeral Services
When a death occurs, the Doctor who was in charge of the person who has died, whether it be a Hospital Doctor or G.P. will issue a Certificate of Cause of Death.
This certificate needs to be given to the Registrar along with the deceased’s place & date of birth.
When you go to register please allow yourself at least 30 minutes as all the information has to be logged on to a computer & then checked. When you have registered, you will be given:
A Green Form (Certificate for Burial or Cremation), which is needed for burial or cremation.
A White Form which is standard issue and only needs to be used if the deceased was in receipt of any Social Income Benefits including State Pension (This acts as a Death Certificate for the State), so you do not need to send them an original copy of the Death Certificate.
You will also be offered original copies of the Death Certificate (certified copy of the entry into the register), which will be needed if the deceased had any bank or building society accounts, insurances, PEP’s/ISA’s, solicitors etc. (each certificate costs £4, however, if purchased at a later date the cost per certificate increases).
Often if you produce an original copy of the Death Certificate to a bank etc., they will take a photocopy the Certificate & return the original. However, they will not accept a photo-copy of the Death Certificate unless they have seen the original.
