Death certificate fees

You may use our standard or premium service for certificate copies.

Please note that once the certificate has been posted, it is no longer the responsibility of the council and all claims for missing items should be addressed to Royal Mail directly.

Standard Service - £10

You can either collect your certificate(s) or we can post it to you.

Certificates are issued within 5 working days of the application being made. We will contact you when your certificate(s) are ready for collection.

If you wish to have the certificate posted to you, an additional £2.80 administration charge will be made. All certificates are sent by recorded delivery.

Payment is required in full before any certificate can be issued.
