From here you can easily order an official Overseas UK Death Certificate. Deaths are those recorded in the Offical Overseas Deaths Records, Consular Deaths Records, High Commission Death Registry and British Army Overseas Records (BAOR). You should however bear in mind that there is no obligation for the death to be recorded with the UK authorities as well as the in-country authorities. This may result in the record only being available from the overseas authority. Please feel free to call us on +44 (0) 330 088 1142 if you have any questions.
NOTE: Please be aware that any certificate issued after 2006 is only available directly from the General Register Office. If this is the case, go to https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content to order your certificates. We may still be able to obtain the certificate for you from a local registry office, but be advised that this is likely to take longer than the stated timespan.
NOTE 2: Stated delivery times are in addition to the time taken to complete the service chosen.
