Swearers Funeral Service Heading


By law, a death must be registered in the district in which it has occurred and normally the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death and the deceased's Medical Card (if available), should be taken to their office.

The Registrar will need to know the following details:

  1. The date and place of death, and the deceased's usual address
  2. The full names and surname (and maiden name if the deceased was a woman who had married)
  3. The date and place of birth (Town & County or Country if born abroad)
  4. The occupation (and husband's name and occupation if the deceased was a married woman or widow)
  5. Whether the deceased was in receipt of a pension or allowance from public funds
  6. If the deceased was married, the age of the surviving widow or widower.

After registration, copies for (Insurance, Banks etc) can be purchased for a nominal fee. You will also be given:

  • A form for burial or cremation which your Funeral Director needs, to carry out your wishes
  • A form to send to the Department of Social Security (DSS), to alter DSS pension benefits or widow's benefit or allowance and to claim assistance with the funeral expenses, if necessary.
