Cause of death certificate

A medical cause of death certificate enables the family of the deceased to register the death. If the cause of death certificate is not completed accurately there will be a delay in registering the death and it can hold up the process for burial or cremations. To speed up the process you may want to be familiar with the examples of a ‘bad’ and ‘good’ cause of death certificate. If you feel that it has not been completed correctly, politely point this out to the medical professional who is completing the cause of death certificate.
