Copy death certificates

We hold records of most deaths that have occurred in the Caerphilly County Borough since 1837.

We can only issue copy death certificates if we hold the register containing the original entry. If not, you must apply to the register office that holds the original record.

Information you will need to provide

Where possible we will need to know the following information about the person that has died:

  • Full name
  • Place of death
  • Date of death
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Occupation
  • Home address at the time of the death
  • If married or in a civil partnership, the name of the spouse or civil partner
