Registering a death

Once you have had a telephone appointment with the Bereavement Office about the medical certificate of cause of death (MCCD) you should register the death as soon as possible (normally within five working days of the death). The Bereavement Office will send the MCCD electronically to the Registrars along with your contact details if you are the person registering the death. The Registrar's Office will then contact you over the telephone to register the death. They will also tell you how to order copies of the death certificate.
