The last thing you need when dealing with bereavement is replacing a lost death certificate. In all the trauma of a loved one’s passing, it’s entirely understandable that you might misplace this documentation. But unfortunately, it is essential for many important official functions.
It may be that you need the death certificate to claim life insurance on behalf of the deceased or access their pension funds. You might even require it further down the line if the prospect of remarriage comes up. Whatever your needs, UK Certificates can deliver a replacement death certificate in good time and at competitive prices.
Experts in the industry
Trying to replace a lost death certificate on your own can be like pulling teeth. Registry offices can sometimes be overly fussy about your application, rejecting it for the smallest of errors. This can add to the waiting time, increasing your stress levels at a time when you’re already under pressure.
At UK Certificates, we can check all information is correct prior to filing the application. What’s more, unlike some companies, we won’t probe you to supply huge amounts of information, ask intrusive questions or demand that you send other documents away.
Instead, all we need from you is a few simple pieces of data about the deceased. Then, consulting our extensive database of official records, we can fill in any missing information from your application and correct any errors we come across, ensuring it will be accepted first time around.
We have used this method to successfully process more than 40,000 certificate replacement applications since 2008, meaning we’re experts in the industry. This invaluable experience means we know exactly what is required when requesting a replacement for a lost death certificate, guaranteeing the best results in the shortest time possible.
Choose your own turnaround time
There are certain situations in which you might need to get hold of a copy of the death certificate at short notice. This can be especially true if money is a concern and the document is needed to claim a personal life insurance policy or access pension funds. On the other hand, if your need is less pressing, you might be happier to wait longer to receive your documents.
To account for this, and to make sure no one needs to pay more than the service they require, we offer three different delivery options:
Standard – mailed within 10 working days
Standard Plus – mailed within 5 working days
Priority – mailed within 1 – 2 working days
Regardless of whichever option you choose, we promise to use Royal Mail as our secure courier. This gives you the peace of mind that a trusted and reliable company will deliver your documentation on time and in impeccable condition.
We’re so sure that you’ll be completely satisfied with our service that we offer replacement certificates for any which are not up to scratch. And of course, for those rare orders we are unable to fulfil, we will give you a full refund.
