Death Registration

  1. Where a death occurs in a Hospital, the Hospital Authorities register the death and a copy of the Certificate may be obtained from the Office of Registration of Deaths & Births, Adelaide Street, Cork or the local Registration Office where the death occurs.
  2. Where a death occurs at home the next-of-kin obtains a Certificate as to the cause of death from the Doctor attending the deceased and takes the Certificate to the Office of Registration of Deaths & Births where a copy of the Death Certificate may be obtained.
  3. Where a Post Mortem takes place it is the Coroner concerned who registers the death and a copy of the Certificate again may be obtained at the Office of Registration of Deaths & Births, Adelaide Street, Cork or the local Registration Office where the death occurs.
