We are working closely with the government and the funeral sector to ensure that we deliver the services that are needed, whilst providing the necessary protection for both you and our colleagues. The situation may continue to change and we will adapt accordingly.

Registering a death COVID 19

Registration of a death will no longer be offered face to face.  Informants may register over the telephone by appointment and death certificates will be posted to families.  Secure e mail links will be used to send and receive information from GP’s, hospitals and relevant authorities for burials and cremations. GP’s, Registrars, Bereavement Services and our team are all working closely to offer the smooth running of this service.
