​How to Register a Death

For deaths occurring within the Township of Centre Wellington, the funeral director usually completes the Statement of Death with information about the deceased. The physician or coroner attending the death also completes the Medical Certificate of Death, which contains the cause of death information.  Both forms are forwarded to the Township's Legislative Services Division along with the registration fee. Once received and recorded by the Clerk, they are forwarded to the Office of the Registrar General for registration.

How to Obtain a Death Certificate

Application for death certificates can be made either online or by mail.

  • Online: Register electronically and pay by credit card
  • By mail: Pick up a paper application at the customer service counter at the Township Municipal Office, 1 MacDonald Square, Elora, complete it, and submit it to the Office of the Registrar General.
