Registration of a Death

When making funeral arrangements, certain information is needed to register the death.

Registration of the death is the responsibility of the funeral director.

In order to complete the documentation we need to know:


• Full names of the deceased
• Residential address
• Date and place of death
• Date and place of birth
• Occupation of the deceased
• Marital status
• Parents’ full names and occupations
• Maiden name
• Marriage details
• Names and ages of children, living and deceased


Once the death is registered, a certified copy of the Registration of Death can usually be obtained within fourteen days.

This is necessary for the completion of any legal and financial matters.


Love & Care requires signatures for the completion of cemetery, medical or government papers.


It is a good idea to keep a record of your personal details up to date at all times.
