Collect your documents - RGD official

April 13, 2018
There are thousands of uncollected birth, marriage and death certificates in storage at the Registrar General's Department offices islandwide.

The Registrar General's Department (RGD) is appealing to persons who have applied and paid for documents and have not collected them to do so now.

Marketing and Planning Manager at RGD, Nicole Whyte, said there are thousands of uncollected birth, marriage and death certificates in storage at the agency's offices islandwide.

She noted that the RGD discontinued its delivery service some time ago, so persons are expected to collect certificates at the RGD location they would have indicated when they applied.

"All certificates are printed at the head office at Twickenham Park and then dispatched to the various locations for collection," she said.

Whyte said the complimentary first birth certificates prepared for children born between 2007 and June 2017 are also among the uncollected documents.

"Your birth certificate is needed to prove your identity and is a critical document that persons should have in their possession. The death certificate shows proof of death and is needed in cases where there is a will, or to claim on a life insurance policy. It is good to have these documents to conduct various businesses and procedures," she said.

Persons may contact the RGD at 749-0550 or 619-1260 and make arrangements for collection.
