What to do when a death occurs

Many might not know what to do when a death of a love one occurs. The following are things one may take note of:

Death registration

Any deaths that occur in Singapore has to be registered within 24 hours, irregardless of citizenship.

Documents to prepare

• Certificate of Cause of Death issued by doctors or Authorised Officers (i.e. Forensic Death Investigators) from the Ministry of Health
• Deceased’s identification documents (e.g. IC & Passport) for cancellation
• Informant’s identification documents (e.g. IC or Passport)

Procedure

To register a death:
• The informant must produce the Certificate of Cause of Death and other supporting documents (e.g. the deceased’s NRIC, passport or citizenship certificate)
• After documents produced are verified, the Registration Officer will print the Death Certificate
• The informant must verify the particulars on the Death Certificate and sign the Death Certificate
• The Death Certificate is issued.
