Register a death

All deaths must be registered within 5 days

Who can register a death

You can register a death if you are:

  • a relative of the deceased
  • someone who was present at the death
  • someone who lives in the house where the death occurred
  • the person making the arrangements with funeral directors

If you’re unsure about whether you can register the death yourself you can use the GOV.UK online tool to find out.
