Registering a death

The doctor will issue the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD) from the hospital, care home or GP practice and scan a copy by email to the register office 

However, the medical practitioner may still prefer to give the MCCD to the informant, so you will need to bring the paperwork to your appointment.

The MCCD may take several days to be issued as the doctor certifying the death will need to follow certain procedures before completing the paperwork.  

The green certificate issued by the registrar for burial or cremation is transmitted electronically to the crematorium or cemetery office. 

There is no basis in law for the mortuary or persons holding the body to require sight of the green Certificate for Burial or Cremation in order to release the body.  The certificate is issued to allow the funeral to go ahead and no other purpose.
