Births, marriages, deaths and nationality Register a death

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.
