Death Certificate Apostille
Death Certificates may be required by overseas authorities when executing a will abroad. It is increasingly popular for UK nationals to own property and/or business interests abroad and for this to form part of the deceased person's estate. At the same time a notarised Will or Power of Attorney may also need to have an Apostille Certificate. We can only legalise original or certified copies of certificates issued by the General Registry Office (GRO) or local Registry Offices in the UK. We can also legalise original death certificates issued by a UK coroner. Translations of these can also be legalised if they have been signed by a practising UK solicitor or notary. Please note that we are NOT able to legalise photocopies of these, even if they have been signed by a practising UK solicitor or notary or attached to a notarial cover sheet.
If you are overseas we can obtain an official copy from the General Register Office on your behalf and return it to you after the apostille process. Contact us for more details of this service.
