Due to the current situation with coronavirus, it is not possible to book an appointment to register a death in person. Instead, death registrations will be carried out by telephone. This applies to the registration of all deaths, including those where coronavirus is not the cause. Please do not attend the registration office in person.
We have introduced a new process where your GP surgery, hospital or hospice will send us an electronic copy of the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD), along with your contact details. Please wait for a registrar to contact you to make arrangements to register the death.
We are working to complete registrations as quickly as possible. We're sorry that there may be some delays due to the current circumstances.
