Where a death occurs in Northamptonshire, you must register the death in Northamptonshire. Although this can be done via any register office in England and Wales, the actual registration will still take place with the Northamptonshire Registrar. It’s called registration by “declaration” and the registrar you visit will take the details and pass them on so that the local Northamptonshire registrar will always register a death in Northamptonshire.

Be aware that registration by declaration slows things down, and you can’t go ahead with the funeral until the Registrar has produced the “green form” to authorise the undertaker to proceed.
