  • Where you've received a finding for a cause of death from the coroner and require an updated death certificate, please contact us.
  • Where a previously issued death certificate did not include the cause of death (or a coroner has amended the details of the death), a new certificate will be issued at no additional cost. You must return any original certificate/s before a new one can be issued.
