Registering a death

Please note ~ before you can register a death you must ensure that you have the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. Unless a Coroner is involved this should be issued by the GP's surgery or doctors at the hospital or nursing home.

Who can register a death?

 

Any of the following people can register the death:

 

  • A relative or civil partner of the deceased
  • A person present at the death
  • The person responsible for the settling of the estate of the deceased

 

Under normal circumstances registration should take place within five days of the death.

Where should I register the death?

 

The death should be registered in the borough that the person died. Although a death can be registered elsewhere this may result in further delays. You must make an appointment to register a death.

What documentation will the registrar require?
What information will I be asked for?
What will I be given once I have registered?
