We can’t register a death for you, but here are details of the places where to register a death, with some information on how to do so and the downloadable Guide “What the Registrar Needs to be told” (see above).  If the coroner is involved, you may gain some reassurance by reading this page.    If you were looking for Probate Registries (they don’t register deaths), go HERE. It is expected that it will be registered within 5 days, so please don’t leave it.  If the Coroner should be involved (and they are with nearly half of all cases, that will delay things.)
