Death registration - Christmas 2020

If you have experienced the loss of a loved one, please accept our condolences. 

We will be in touch to arrange a telephone appointment with you to register the death once we have received the necessary paperwork from the hospital, GP surgery or Coroners Office.  The contact details for next of kin will be provided to us by the Dr or the Coroners Office, and we will call you to arrange your telephone appointment.

Appointments are being held between Christmas and New Year to register deaths. 

Please email us at if you have any questions.

What is it going to cost?

There is no charge to register a death. If you wish to purchase Deaths Certificates, these can be purchased at the registration telephone appointment at a cost of £11 per certificate. This will then be posted to you by recorded delivery.

  • full name

  • their place of birth
