Information the register office needs

The registrar will interview you in private and will ask for the following information about the person who has died:
  • their date and place of death
  • their full name and surname (and maiden surname, if relevant)
  • their date and place of birth
  • their occupation
  • their usual address
  • if the person who has died was married, the name, occupation and date of birth of the surviving spouse
  • whether the person who died was receiving a pension or other public funds.

Documents you will need to take

  • The medical certificate of cause of death issued by the doctor treating the person who has died. This is essential - the registrar can do nothing without it. If the death has been referred to the coroner, the coroner's office will advise you what to do
  • Details of any pension or allowance the deceased was receiving
