Where to order a death certificate from?
« on: Tuesday 10 August 21 22:43 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone
Apologies if this has already been posted elsewhere but I need a hard copy of my mumís death certificate urgently for my solicitor to complete house transfer under a will.
My friend who is helping research my family tree usually orders them for me and they cost £11 and take around 2 weeks.

Is there another way to order that wonít take weeks ?
Thanking you in advance,

I ordered a birth cert on 1/8 (Sunday) and it arrived Friday 6th

If you have a Grant of Probate - is that not sufficient for the solicitor?

Thanks for your post.

Not very experienced in this but yes you would think so. We have the grant of propane done. Itís the family house and my brother is now buying the house of his siblings and the ownership of the house iha# my parents name on it. We have spent £32k defending this will. Nightmare!!!

If you are using the GRO site then you just need to select the entry from the listing and the site completes the form for you.   

Did you not need a death certificate when you applied for probate.

So who registered your mother's death?  Yourself or someone else?

When I registered my husband's death I obtained several copies as I knew that I would need to send a death certificate to the various bodies who would require proof of his death.

You can order the certificate from the GRO using their priority service. It is much more expensive £35, but if you order before 4pm with the reference details, you can request next day or named day delivery.

My mother died 15 years ago and father 3. My brother disputed the will but has now agreed to buy it. So we hav3 to have death certificate in order to be able to transfer deeds to my brother.

All done now and thank you everyone,
