Death Certificate

(6 Posts)

I am not English, and have not lived in England for many years now.
But my late boyfriend was form England. And due to bureaucracy in my country they keep on loosing a lot of documents - including my dear boyfriends death certificate.

I need the death certificate because we managed to have a child just before he died, and they need it in order for my child to get the child pension the child is entitled to.

Not really our fault that it is lost, but the quickest way is to get them a new one myself I record.

The only problem is that I don't know where, or to whom, or what institution in England I can request a death certificate. It has been many years since we lived the now.

So I wonder if anyone here on Mumsnet are able to say what institution or organ where I can ask for this?

I would be very grateful if anyone could!

Apologize for all gramatical mistakes and typos- my English has gone a bit rusty.

Is this what you need?

Hello OP

You can do this online I think.
You need the GPO or is it GRO, I'm sure its the first one.
If you look on www. there will be a section that tells you what to do and how to apply.
A replacement certificate will cost you about £10.
Failing this contact your local Register office, the one you registered the birth of your child in England, they will give you the address.
I am so sorry for your loss.

It looks like just what I need!
