Registration service - Coronavirus update
The provision to provide a death registration by telephone has now ended following changes to Coronavirus legislation.
Death registrations now need a signature from the informant before paperwork can be issued. Staffordshire have adopted a two staage process, collecting initial information from the informant by telephone and making a further appointment for the informant to attend their local registration office to sign the register page and collect paperwork.
The registrar will still need to see the medical certificate issued by the doctor or GP to allow the registration to take place.
If you need to register a death, speak with the GP/doctor issuing the medical certificate who should be aware that they need to send the medical certificate to the registrars directly, using an electronic portal.
Once we have received the medical certificate, we will contact you by text message, email or phone (so please make sure the GP/doctor has your mobile number and email address). Once contacted, you can make your appointment online using a link provided, or call us on 0300 111 8001.
If the Coroner has been involved and a medical certificate is not being issued, you will be notified by the Coroner when paperwork has been issued to the registrars so you can make an appointment with us to register the death
Birth Registrations are being conducted as normal.
To make an appointment to register a birth, please call 0300 111 8001 or book online.
