Book an appointment

All deaths must be registered in person at a register office, unless subject to Coroner's Inquest.

Before booking your appointment to register a death, you should:

  • Read all of these guide pages, to be sure you have everything needed to register.
  • Contact the Medical Examiner or medical practice who has sent the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD) to the Registrar. They should be able to confirm they received an auto-response from us.
  • As soon as you know that the MCCD has been received by us you can book an appointment to register a death.

  • If you have any concerns please call 0345 60 80 198 during normal working hours.

Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your appointment.

Our offices are small, only those essential to the registration should attend.
