Registrar Generalís Department | 2016-05-05 00:00:00

The Registrar Generalís Department (RGD) is hosting a Death Symposium on May 6, 2016 at the NHT Overtime Facility, 4 Park Boulevard, New Kingston. This Symposium aims to educate the public on the steps involved in handling matters pertaining to death; that is, from the moment death occurs to registering the death at the RGD.

Similar to the Death Symposium hosted in Montego Bay in December 2015, participants will be taken through each step in the process of what to do when a death occurs. The information will be delivered through presentations from the various stakeholders involved, including: the Police Department, Legal Medicine Unit, Parish Council, Jamaica Bar Association, RGD, and Insurance Companies. We have also included the Electoral Office of Jamaica who will speak to the importance of death registration to the electoral process.

Death is a life event, of which many persons do not know the correct procedures to follow when it occurs. The RGD is aware that this information is important, and is playing a pivotal role in helping persons understand the procedures involved, thereby, making the process a less stressful one. Through this symposium, all the stakeholders involved in the process will be in one setting providing all the necessary information and answering questions from participants. Additionally, the Symposium is free, and open to all persons to attend.

The Symposium will be from 10:00am-2:00pm.
