What to do if someone dies

Register the death and apply for a death certificate

After the person has been buried or cremated, the funeral company will usually help the family to register the death. 

A death registration form needs to be completed and submitted to the Births, Deaths and Marriages office. Read more about how to register a death.

You can then apply for a death certificate.
