Book a death registration appointment

Our on-line booking facility is unavailable at the present time due to IT maintenance. 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.
