Register a death

What is this for?

This form is to book a telephone appoint with us. It is during the telephone appointment that you will be able to register a death.

Coronovirus information

We have asked Funeral Directors to consider the safety of mourners at funerals and restricted attendance to 15 close family and friends. It is very important for people attending funerals to keep to the government social distance recommendations of at least 2 meters from each other. We have put in place cleaning between funerals to help minimise the risk of infection between people attending funerals. 

We know these changes can be very difficult and thank you for your understanding in order to keep everyone safe.

What is it going to cost?

There is no charge to register a death. If you wish to purchase Deaths Certificates, these can be obtained at the registration appointment at a cost of £11 per certificate.

What we need from you

You will need to provide the following information about the deceased:

  • full name
  • their address
  • their date of birth
  • their place of birth
  • their occupation
  • their maiden name of a woman who has married
  • in the case of a married man, woman or widow, the full names and occupation of their spouse
  • if the deceased was receiving a pension from public funds, such as civil service or army pension
  • ID for the person registering the death

Please bring with you the medical certificate of cause of death and the person's birth certificate, National Insurance number and medical card if possible.
