Order copy death certificates

If you don't yet have a certificate, you will need to register the death.

If you have already registered the death, you can order additional certificates for deaths that took place in West Northamptonshire.

Certificates cost £11 per copy. If you request the priority service this will cost an additional £24 per certificate.

Before you start

  • All copy certificates are posted. You cannot collect copy certificates from our registration offices.
  • The quickest and easiest way to request a copy certificate is to apply online.

Standard application service

We will post your certificate within 7 working days of receipt of the order, using 2nd class post for standard applications.

Priority application service (online only)

We offer a priority service for online orders of certificates for an additional £24 per certificate. The additional fee will be added to your order when you select priority service.

  • We must receive your order before 3pm for us to dispatch by 1st class post the next working day.
  • Any applications received after 3pm will be dispatched by 1st class post the day after the next working day.

To take advantage of the priority service, please select this option on the order form.
