Register a Death

All deaths in England and Wales must be registered within 5 days, unless it has been, or needs to be reported to the coroner. 


You should do this at the register office for the area where the death occurred.


It is possible to make a declaration of a death at your local register office, however this could cause delays to funeral arrangements.
