Death Certificate: - That shows the cause of death (this is free of charge) A formal Notice that states that the doctor has signed the Medical certificate. Take this medical certificate to your local Registrar office to get the death registered.

Death must be registered with your local registrar of birth/Marriages/Deaths for the district or sub district in which it occurred within five days. If the death has been referred to the coroner, it cannot be registered until the registrar has received authority from the coroner to do so. However if the cause of death is quite clear then you can take the medical certificate issued by the GP to the
Registrar and they will register it.
