Once you have received the certification from your local doctor or hospital, an appointment at the registry office must be made to register the death, the easiest way you can do this is online. Jill is happy to do this for you, or if your loved one has passed away in a hospital the bereavement officer can do this for you.


To make an appointment yourself please click on the following link:


Carlisle Registration Office

Lady Gillford's House

Petteril Bank Road



Tel: 0300 303 2472



Opening times: Monday to Friday - 9.00am to 4.30pm


The registrar will issue you with the death certificate for your own use (i.e. banks, pensions or insurance). You will also receive a green certificate which is required by the funeral director to allow a burial or cremation to take place. The information you need is as follows:


  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


If possible, you should also take the following documents. They are not absolutely essential but provide much of the additional information you need for the registration, if you cannot find these do not worry, the Registrar will guide on what to do:


  • NHS card (also called the medical card)

  • Birth certificate

  • Driving licence

  • Council tax bill

  • Marriage or civil partnership certificate (if applicable)

  • If possible please take the National Insurance number of the deceased and the number of a surviving spouse or civil partner

  • Passport

  • Proof of address (e.g. utility bill)


NOTE: It is recommended that several copies of the Death Certificate are obtained from the Registrar, as these will be required for any pension claims, insurance policies, banks, building societies and solicitor if appointed. There is a small charge per certificate.


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