Deaths, funerals and cremations

Customer notice:

The Register Office will be closed on Monday 3 October 2022 for staff training. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

We will re-open as normal on Tuesday 4 October 2022.


  • Due to an unexpected increase in demand for death registrations, appointment times may take you beyond the normal five days. Please do not worry about this.
  • We will do our best to arrange your appointment as soon as we have all of the necessary, completed paperwork from the doctors, hospitals, bereavement office and hospice.
  • Please do not try to call to make an appointment. We will call you in due course.
  • Many thanks for your understanding at this very difficult time.
