We would like to offer you and your family our deepest sympathy at this difficult time.
How to register a death during the COVID-19 pandemic
Face to face appointments with the Registrar have been suspended until further notice, however you will be able to register the death remotely. You do not need to collect the death certificate from the hospital / GP or go to a registration office in person to register the death.
Instead, the information will be sent electronically and the registration can be completed over the telephone.
A leaflet has been produced to guide you through the process:

The person taking responsibility for registering the death is called the informant and they can be a family member, friend or with agreement the funeral director.
