The registrar must, upon receiving a written request from a person who has
miscarried a child or given birth to a still-born child, issue a certificate
(“certificate of loss”) to that person, where the miscarried or still-born child
is not eligible to be registered under section 1 of the Births and Deaths
Registration Act 1953 (particulars of births to be registered) and the criterion
in subsection (2) is met.
