The Spirit Division was one of three divisions under the control of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures.[1][2] It dealt with all duties and problems concerning those magical creatures classified as a "Spirit" by the Ministry of Magic.

As mentioned by Newt Scamander, ghosts objected to the prejudice against the living-impaired implicit in their being classified as Beings (they consider themselves Has-Beens), so they're handled by the Spirit Division.[3]
