Register a death

Register a death with Central Bedfordshire Council

You must register a death within 5 days. You will need to book an appointment to go to one of our four Registration Offices to register the death.

All deaths must be registered with the Registrar of Births and Deaths in the area where the death occurred.

If the death occurred in Central Bedfordshire, but you live elsewhere, you can register the death by making a declaration to any Registrar of Births and Deaths in England or Wales.

They will forward the details of the death and any certificate fee to the correct registration district, who will record the event and issue a certificate by post.
