The person who registers the death is usually a relative of the person who has died. If no relatives are available, then the death can be registered by:
Anyone who was there when the person died.
Someone who lives in the place where the person died.
The person who's taking responsibility for arranging the funeral.
The person who registers the death will need to visit the local Registrar, which might mean making an appointment. If you'd like support, we can accompany you to the Registrar's Office.
What you'll need to give to the Registrar?
The Registrar will need to know some things about the person who has died:
The date and place of their birth
Their full name
The date of death, and where it happened
Their home address
If they had a pension or allowance from public funds
If they were married, (if they were, the Registrar will need to know their living husband's or wife's date of birth).
