Where should I register the death?

Christmas opening times

See our Christmas opening times here

Certificates posted after 20 December may not arrive until after 5 January.

If you require your certificates earlier, please arrange to collect them in person. 

If the death occurred in East Sussex (excluding Brighton & Hove), Book online to register at one of our Register Offices.

If the death occurred outside of East Sussex, it should be registered with the local registration service to where it happened.

If the death occurred overseas, the process of registration is different. For advice visit Register a death (gov.uk).
