Deaths and 'Tell us once'

Who can register a death

 

Who Can Register a Death?

  • A relative
  • Someone who was present at the death
  • The occupier of the premieses where the death occured. This informant must either be the Senior Resident Officer or the Matron of the establishment where the death occured.
  • The person making the arrangements with the funeral directors. 

Most deaths are registered by a relative. The registrar would normally only allow other people to complete the registration if there are no relatives available.
