When and where must a death be registered?

When and where must a death be registered?

Within 5 days, or 7 days if a coroner is investigating the death. The death must be registered in the district where it happened.

If you can't get to the required office, you can visit your local office and declare. This is known as registration by declaration, which means there can be a delay of up to a week for documents needed for funeral arrangements.
