What is a Death Certificate Apostille Legalisation?

A death certificate in the UK is an official document issued by the government (GRO – Gov Record Office) or Coroner, which declares the cause of death, location, time of death and some other personal information about the deceased (marriage status, illness etc)

How to get copies of Death Certificates?

Usually, you get a Death certificate shortly after the death of a person and is issued by Doctor, Coroner or Gov officials. If you have lost or you need a new Death Certificate, we can issue in 1-2 working days. Apostille on the Dead Certificate can be issued then on the same day on emergency.

Info on the UK Death Certificate:

Where and when died
This column should provide date of death and a location or full address.

Name and surname
This is the name given to the registrar by the informant. Please note that this will be the name
they were using at the time of death, not the name they were given at birth.

The informant gives the deceased’s age at death to the best of their knowledge. This is not always correct.

This will be the last known occupation of the deceased. Females were usually recorded by their relationship to husband or father – eg ‘widow of’.

Cause of death
If the word ‘certified’ appears, it means the cause of death was given by the doctor in medical attendance of the deceased. If there was an inquest, that will also be noted.

Signature, description and residence of informant
Often a spouse or other close relative. If the address is the same as the place of death, then it’s likely the deceased died at home. After 1875, the relationship to the deceased was recorded.

The death was registered. This was usually very shortly after the death as a certificate was needed before a burial could take place.

Death Certificate can be issued only by a registered Coroner or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland . The best practice is to get Death Certificate Apostille on original or certified copy (sign by an Solicitor or Public Notary)

Be aware that I you may need to get a copy of the Will, Testament or the Probate documents legalised with apostille.
Death Certificate Apostille can be issued in one day or one hour in emergency situation

Replacement Death Certificate Apostille can be ordered if you have a picture of the document or the decesed details. If lost, we at the Apostille UK can issue another death certificate then legalise with Hague Apostille
