Presumption of Death Act 2013

Correction and annotation of the Register

64.Paragraph 5 makes provision for the correction of clerical errors in the register. Substantive correction will only follow the order of the court, but clerical errors may be corrected on the authority of the Registrar General.

65.Paragraph 5(3) enables the Registrar General to annotate the register. Paragraph 5(4) and (5) require the Registrar General to annotate the register where the death of a person who is presumed to have died is actually registered under the Births and Deaths Registration Act 1953 or under equivalent legislation in another jurisdiction.
