After your loved one has passed you do not need to do anything in relation to collecting the death certificate and making an appointment to register. Since COVID-19, the process of registration has changed. The death certificate or MCCD will be emailed/scanned to the Registrar with the NOK details. The Registrar will then call you to make a face to face appointment. You will need to know how many certificates you require as these will be required for any pension claims, insurance policies, banks, building societies and solicitors if appointed.  


Certificates are £12.50 each and will be sent out to you in the post first class. If you require duplicates they are also £12.50.  We do not need a copy of the certificate from you.

When the Registrar calls you will need:

  1. Full name of the deceased

  2. Place and date where the death occurred

  3. Home address

  4. Occupation

  5. Marital status

  6. Maiden name

  7. Spouse full name and occupation

  8. NI number if known

  9. NHS number if known


If the Coroner is involved, Jill will be able to advise you on what you need to do.
