A death registration is a permanent, legal record of death. A funeral director is authorized to complete the Statement of Death. A physician or coroner present at the time of death will complete the Medical Certificate of Death, which contains details about the cause of death. The funeral director ensures that both forms are completed and submitted to the local registrar office located at the Civic Centre.
Both forms are necessary to obtain a burial permit. Once registered, a Burial Permit and Acknowledgement of Death Registration form will be issued. Burial permits can be obtained at the Civic Centre during regular business hours.
