That is very interesting. My son spent 2 days tryiing to ring the register office but no reply. I wonder if that is why.I’ve just found out that we no longer go to the Registry Office to get the death certificate in person. The doctor fills in a form with relevant info ( hence why he is phoning me on Tuesday) then email it together with his medical certificate to the Registry Office. They then send the death certificate direct to the funeral directors which gives the right to hold a funeral. I’m not sure at which stage we get the certificate nor how we get additional copies if we need them. Interesting!
We were told by our doctor that hopefully he was emailing the certificate that night but we assumed it was to the coroner. We did know we could not book a date until the funeral parlour had the certificate .
Where we are we are looking at about 4 weeks after they receive the certificate.
We have another appointment on Tuesday and are hoping we can book a date.
It just seems so long.
