Q. How do I get a death certificate?

How do we get a death certificate?

Funeral directors will apply for this on behalf of the family. It is the initial information gathered by the funeral director that is forwarded to Births, Deaths and Marriages (Internal Affairs) along with the “Certificate of Cause of Death” form. Families should generally allow ten working days from the time the funeral directors forward this request to Lower Hutt. The application is generally posted the day after the funeral service.
