If a relative needs to be buried within a short time, due to cultural or religious reasons, you can use our out of hours emergency registration service.
We can issue the necessary paperwork so that you can organise the burial within 24 hours, or as soon as you need to. To use this service you will need to show us a completed medical certificate of cause of death issued by the doctor. After the burial you must contact us to register the death.
In some circumstances the death may need to be reported to the coroner. This will mean we may not be able to issue the paperwork to you within 24 hours.
