We have had to change the way that some of our service operates to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The easiest way to get a replacement death certificate is direct from the register office that holds the records.
We are only able to issue copy certificates if the event was registered in the Torbay district after 1837.
To buy a replacement certificate you should complete the online application below, we will then post out your certificate to you. A full refund will be given if the entry is not found.
The fee for a copy death certificate is £11.
Your certificate will be posted within five working days of receiving your application, by 2nd class post. For an additional fee of £1 your certificate will be posted 1st class.
We offer a priority service where the certificate will be sent out 1st class the next working day as long as you order by 3pm. This will cost £35 for each certificate.
