A death must be registered by the Registrar of Deaths for the district in which the death occurred. Cornwall is one registration district with 12 Registration Offices (listed below.) You can register a death in Cornwall at any of them. You do need an appointment. You might find the informative video about registering a death on the home page first.
It is important that a death is registered direct in the Registration District in which it happened if possible or there will be a delay. If you are unsure in which area the death occurred, please ring 0300 1234 181 for advice. (Between the hours of 8am – 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 4pm on Saturdays.) A death should be registered within working 5 days, unless the Registrar says that this period may be extended.
You can register a death in Cornwall at any Registration Office in England and Wales by way of “declaration.” The forms needed to authorise the funeral and the death certificates you require will be sent by post, so there will be a delay.
Make an appointment on 0300 1234 181 as soon as the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death has been issued to you. Please take this certificate with you when you attend the Registration Office. Click the link for a Guide as to the information you need to register a death in Cornwall.
