Death certificates for deaths occurring outside of this jurisdiction cannot be issued by the Cayman Registry. An application has to be made in the jurisdiction where the death occurred.
The applicant would be required to contact the hospital to make the correction to the death notification. The hospital would then file the corrected notification to facilitate the correction of the certificate.
For the application of a death certificate, the applicant needs to provide the Registry with the full name of the deceased and the date of death.
If only partial information is available, a search may be conducted at a cost.
Anyone can apply for a death certificate as it is a public register.
An application to obtain death certificates may be submitted on http://www.vitals.ky
