Interim Certificates of Cause of Death

The Coroner will issue a ‘Coroner’s Interim Certificate of Death’ once an inquest has been opened or an investigation formally commenced.  This allows the funeral to be organised and to enable administration of the estate.

The death cannot be registered and a final death certificate obtained until after the investigation or inquest has been concluded.
