We have had to make significant changes to this service, due to the Covid 19 pandemic
The office is closed to the public and all death/still birth registrations are being done by telephone. For the current information about this service, including information about how to contact us to arrange to register a death, please read our Coronavirus update
A death should normally be registered within 5 days unless the Coroner is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death. (There is a different process to obtain a death certificate after an inquest)
Tell Us Once
Tell Us Once is an optional free service that lets you report a death to most government organisations and council departments in one go.
When you register a death with us, the registrar will ask you if you want to use this service. Find out more about Tell Us Once.
