Apply for copy of a death certificate

If you're applying for a death certificate, for a death registered in the last 14 days, please:

  • use the standard death certificate option (£12.50). All applications relating to a recent death are treated as a priority.
  • do not place an order for a certificate until after the death has been registered.

To apply for a copy of a death certificate you'll need the following information to hand:

  • details of the deceased (name, year and place of death)
  • your name, address and contact details
  • payment information
  • reason for request and any other comments to assist with our search

Important note: We are only able to accept applications via this site for deaths which took place in Suffolk. To avoid additional cost and inconvenience, please check this point carefully before proceeding.
