Register a death

Book an appointment

Complete our online form to book an appointment at one of our offices to register a death.

There is a different process if you need to book an urgent registration at the weekend.

What you'll need

You'll need to provide some information about the person that died, this includes their:

  • full legal name
  • date and place of birth
  • occupation (or confirm if they were retired)
  • marital status at the time of the death

You'll also need to confirm:

  • where the death occurred
  • if the death has been referred to the coroner
  • your full name, email address and relationship to the deceased

Before starting the registration, you must make sure a doctor has confirmed that the medical certificate of cause of death (MCCD) has been sent to the registrar so the death can be registered. The MCCD is different to the death certificate.
