Registration service - Coronavirus update

Following the latest government guidance, we request that face coverings are worn when attending an appointment with us or when entering our premises for enquiries, etc. 

Death registrations

The Registration Coronavirus Act passed in April 2020 has changed the way death registrations can be conducted, allowing registrations to be done via telephone instead of face to face to help prevent spread of the Coronavirus.

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 or email (so please make sure the GP/doctor has your mobile number and/or 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.
