Email:    registeroffice@manchester.gov.uk

By phone

Unfortunately, it is not possible to contact us by phone during the current pandemic.

If you are unable to find the answer to your query on the website, please send us an email, including details of your enquiry, and your contact number in case we need to phone you back. We will respond to your email as soon as we can, but due to the very high number of enquiries we are receiving, it is very unlikely that we will be able to provide a same day response.

If you do not have access to email, please ask someone else to email us on your behalf.

If you need to, you can contact us in an emergency, such as:

  • a burial required within 24 hours
