Registering a death

Once you have the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from the Doctor, Hospital,  Hospice or other place of death, you will need to make arrangements to register the  death. Funeral Directors are unable to register a death. This is normally done by  the next of kin or an executor of the deceased. All our local registrars now operate  an appointment system, therefore please telephone before visiting. It normally takes  between 15 and 30 minutes to register a death and please be advised that the Registrar  reserves the right to charge for missed appointments. Details of the local Registrar Offices  are on the following page. We can assist with Registrars outside of the local area, please  ask if this is the case.

The Registrar will require the Doctor’s Medical Certificate of  cause of death, together with the deceased’s medical card  (if it is available). The Registrar will also need to know the  date and place of death, the full name and surname  (including maiden name if married woman), date and  place of birth, occupation, usual address and whether  the deceased was in receipt of a pension. The  Registrar will issue you with a green certificate, which  the funeral director requires as soon as possible.  Whilst you are at the Registrars, it is also advisable  that you purchase copies of the entry into the  Register. Banks, Building Societies and   Insurance Companies will require sight of these  to close accounts, although they may not necessarily keep them, but they will not  always accept photocopies.
