Every death in England or Wales should be registered in the district in which it takes place, within 5 days of the date of death where their is no Coroner involvement. A medical certificate of cause of death would normally be given to relatives to bring to the registrar’s office, but during this time the certificate will be emailed to the registrar by the hospital or doctor’s surgery.
