The Registrar will retain the Death Certificate (Form 11), give all the other paperwork back to whoever is registering the death and provide the following:
Form 14 – (White Form)
This must be given to the Funeral Director as soon as possible to be passed on to the Crematorium or Burial Authority
Form BD8 – (White Form)
A telephone number is now provided on this form to cancel the state pension and any other benefits that the deceased may have been in receipt of.
Abbreviated Death Certificate is issued Free of Charge and may be accepted by some banks, insurance/pension companies etc. as notification of death. The registrar will also ask if Extract copies of the Entry of Register of Deaths are required. These copies currently cost £10.00 each if purchased at the time of registration, (if purchased at a later date i.e.one month the cost is £15 each). Copies are required by most banks or building societies, insurance companies and pension companies etc. to wind up the deceased’s estate. It is advisable to obtain one or two copies at the time of registration.
