Ordering a copy certificate

The national registration system that is used to register births, deaths and marriages and to also produce copy certificates is currently experiencing technical issues.

Due to these issues many registrations are being processed manually.

We apologise for any delay or inconvenience this may cause you.

We are working hard to process your requests as quickly as possible and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Deaths, funerals and memorials

COVID-19 bereavement services changes

  • We have increased capacity at Dewsbury Moor and Huddersfield Crematoria chapels.
  • Waiting rooms are open.
  • Book of Remembrance chapels are open.

We still ask families to consider who attends a service and also strongly encourage mourners who do attend to continue to wear a face covering and use the sanitising station on entry to the chapel.
