Part 5 of the Civil Registration Act 2004, as amended, sets out the arrangements with respect to the registration of a death occurring within the State. The required particulars that are recorded relating to a deceased person include the place of death and the address at which the deceased person resided before their death (Section 37 and Schedule 1, Part 5). Based on the information recorded in the death registers, it is not feasible for the Civil Registration Service to identify deaths that occurred within direct provision centres or of person who resided in such places.

The Reception and Integration Agency has responsibility for direct provision matters within the Department of Justice and Equality.
