How do you register a death?

The Death must be registered at the local office of Registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the district where the death occurred (or where the body was found). Registration should take place as soon as possible, at least within five days of the death. If the death has been referred to the Coroner, the procedure is slightly different, and we will advise you accordingly.

 

Who can register the death?

 

The person attending the Registry Office is called the "Informant", and must be one of the following:

 

 

What information will the Registrar require?

 

 

Information to be taken to the Registrar:

The most important document required is "The Medical Certificate of Cause of Death", which is issued by the Doctor who attended the Deceased during his or her last illness. If the "Informant" does not take this to the Registrar the Registration CANNOT TAKE PLACE.

It is advisable to telephone the Surgery or Hospital to find out when the Certificate will be ready for collection. Do not make any arrangements to Register the Death until you have confirmed that the Certificate has been completed.

 

It is also advisable to take with you the Deceased's Medical Card, the NHS number and Birth & Marriage Certificates.
