What to do after someone dies

Things you need to do

Book a death registration appointment

Unfortunately our on-line booking facility is unavailable for our Chippenham and Trowbridge offices at the present time.  We apologise for any inconvenience.  If you wish to book a death registration appointment, please telephone 0300 003 4569.  

How much will it cost?

The service is free of charge. To deal with the deceased's estate, you may need to purchase death certificates which are certified copies of the register entry.
These may be required for banks, building societies, insurance claims, solicitors and some pension schemes. There is a fee for each certificate issued.

Tell us once

This service enables you to notify various National and Local Government agencies that the death has taken place. We offer this as part of your death registration appointment.  Tell us once
