Copy death certificates

This district was formerly known as Easthampstead or Bracknell. It includes Sandhurst and North Ascot and up until 1998 included Sunningdale and South Ascot.

We hold the registers for all deaths that occurred in Bracknell Forest since 1837 and any deaths which took place in South Ascot/Sunningdale/Sunninghill, including Heatherwood Hospital, from 1 April 1934 to 31 March 1998.

We do not provide certificates for deaths in South Ascot, Sunningdale, or Sunninghill since 1 April 1998.

For these certificates you should apply to Windsor and Maidenhead register office.
