In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Burials - Further Information
Legal formalities must be completed before a burial can take place (the Cemetery is not allowed to bury without a "Green Form" which is provided by the Registrar of Deaths when a death is registered or a "White Form" from the Coroner).
The Cemetery also requires a burial form to be filled in for its own records and to complete its legal obligations. This form can be downloaded here (it is a PDF file and you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. Click on the link below to obtain if you do not already have this).
We have produced a guide on what to do after a death both from an Islamic point of view as well as dealing with the paperwork that must be completed so that burial can take place. We have also included in the guide details on how to contact the Registrar of Deaths during weekends and Public Holidays and have also provided details of Muslim Funeral Directors. The guide can be downloaded by clicking here.
