Take the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available).  Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.
