Register a death

When someone dies, the doctor who was treating them will issue a medical certificate of cause of death. 

All deaths must be registered within the district in which the event took place. By law in England and Wales this must be done within 5 calendar days from the date of death. Once the doctor has issued the Medical Certificate Cause of Death (MCCD) please call the registration service on 01597 827468 to arrange an appointment to register.
