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. 


*Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we regret we are currently unable to offer any appointments to register due to the closure to the public of all council buildings/offices.*


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. 


Book Appointment

In order to register a death, a personal visit with the Office of Registration is necessary.
