All deaths should be registered by telephone appointment instead of face to face to help ensure the safety of you and our staff.
Hospitals and GPs are forwarding the Medical Certificate Cause of Death (MCCD) directly to the Registration offices who will contact you to make a telephone appointment.
You must register a death within five days of the event (including weekends and Bank Holidays). Read through this information and use the link on the last page to book an appointment.
Where possible, please choose the first available appointment at your chosen register office. Bear in mind that other offices may have an earlier appointment which may be more convenient.
It is preferable to register a death in the area where the person died. If this is within Warwickshire you can book an appointment at any of our registration offices and we will give you the documents you will need on the day.
If you use a registration office outside Warwickshire, the documents will be sent to the office in the area where the person died before they are issued to you. This means you will usually wait a few days for them.
Who can register a death?
You can register the death if you are:
- a relative
- someone present at the death
- the person who found the body
- the person in charge of the body
- the person making arrangements with the funeral directors
