Death Certificates


A death certificate is a document issued by a government official such as a registrar of vital statistics that declares the date, location and cause of a person's death.

Before issuing a death certificate, the authorities usually require a certificate from a physician or coroner to validate the cause of death and the identity of the deceased. In cases where it is not completely clear that a person is dead (usually because their body is being sustained by life support), a neurologist is often called in to verify brain death and to fill out the appropriate documentation.

In the U.K., registration of deaths began in 1837. The death certificate lists when and where a person died, the name and surname, sex, date of birth (or age on older certificates), occupation, address, cause of death, as well as information about the person who reported the death. Beginning in 1874, a doctor's certificate was necessary for the issuance of a death certificate (prior to that, no cause of death needed to be given). Stillbirths only had to be registered after 1927, and it wasn't until 1960 that a cause of death had to be listed.
