This must be done before a funeral can take place. We advise that this is done as soon as possible.
YOU SHOULD REGISTER THE DEATH within the district where the death has taken place within 5 days of the death. The death can be registered in another Registrars district in England and Wales, by Declaration of death, but this can delay the funeral by upto 7 days as all documentation has to be forwarded to the Registar for the district of death occurred in and certificates posted back to applicant.
A list of Registrars can be found lower down on this page. We can advise which registrar's office you should use.
All the above can be contacted on 03001118001 or by email at registrars enquires
The are also Register Offices in Queens Hospital, Burton on Trent, County Hospital, Stafford and University Hospital of North Staffordshire, for deaths in the hospital (The Bereavement office will advise on this)
