Registering A Death & Who To Inform

During the next few days, there is a lot to be done. Mostly administrative, but can involve a lot of running about.

Collect the ‘Medical Certificate of Cause of Death’* - If the death occured at a nursing/residential home, It is usual for the ‘certificate’ to be issued from the GP surgery office. It is best to ring them first to enquire when the ‘certificate’ will be available. If the death occured at hospital,  you should telephone the hospital bereavment office to enquire when the ‘certificate’ will be available.

Registering the Death - Upon collection of the ‘Medical Certificate’ from hospital or the GP Surgery office, you can contact the relevant Registrar‘s Office (within the  area in which the death occured) to book an appointment to register the death. Hull Registrar's Office: 01482 300 300  -  East Riding of Yorkshire Registrar's Office:01482 393565/6

The registrar will need from you, the ‘Medical Certficate of Cause of Death’, and ask you some questions about the person who has passed away. They will provide you with ‘Death Certificates’** (officially called a ‘Copy of Entry Into The Register’) and an important green form (Certificate for Burial or Cremation) the later of which needs to be passed on to your chosen funeral director. The Registrar will also deal with some aspects of notifying the Department for Work & Pensions.

*Unless your loved one has been refered to Her Majesty’s Coroner
** ‘Extra ’Death Certificates’ must be paid for, usually only a few pounds each
