Registering A Death

Registering your loved one’s death is the first step in arranging a funeral. While it can seem overwhelming at such a difficult time, it is very important to set the process in motion swiftly, to avoid delays later.

Registration is normally handled by a relative of the deceased but can also be done by someone who was present when the person passed away, someone who lived with the deceased, or the person organising the funeral.

The first step is to visit or make an appointment with the registrar.  This will be done at the register office in the district where your loved one passed away.

You’ll need the following information:

 
  • The deceased’s full name and date of birth
  • Where and when the death occurred
  • The deceased’s last occupation and address
  • Information on pensions or allowances from public funds, if they had one
  • Marriage certificate, if applicable
  • Cause of death or medical certificate
  • NHS medical card, if you have it
  • Birth certificate

 

From there, the registrar will issue a certified copy of an entry of death (death certificate) and also a Part B certificate for burial or cremation (green form).  You’ll be required to hand the green form to us for the funeral service to take place. You can also get more copies of the death certificate from the registrar for a small fee.
