A death needs to be registered within 5 days of the passing at the local Register Office, if you are unsure of its location you can search online for the nearest office to the deceased's home or the hospital they passed away in. You will need to take the medical certificate signed by their doctor. You should also take as much of the following information as possible which could include:
  • Proof of the deceased's address.
  • Their marriage/civil partnership certificate.
  • Birth certificate.
  • Driving licence.
  • NHS medical card.
You will need to provide the Registrar with the following information:
  • Their full name and most recent address
  • The date and place of birth and death
  • Their most recent occupation
  • If the deceased was receiving any benefits, including a state pension.
  • The full name of the deceased's spouse / civil partner.
Once registered you will be provided with the following:
  • A certificate to give to the funeral director allowing the burial / cremation of the deceased to go ahead.
  • A form to send the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) allowing them to deal with the deceased's benefits and pension.
  • A copy of the death certificate, which there will be a charge for.
You may also need to purchase extra copies of the death certificates as these may be required when dealing with the deceased's will, pensions etc.
