Coronavirus: Important information
Death registrations will continue to be carried out by telephone appointment. If the death occurred in Surrey you can register the death over the telephone by making a death registration appointment.
Unless the death has been referred to the coroner, it is a legal requirement to register the death within five days.
The Surrey Registration Service realises the difficulties you face at this time and we endeavour to provide a sympathetic, helpful and considerate service to you. Our information is intended to offer you help and guidance about some of the things that you need to do from the moment a bereavement occurs, as well as providing details of groups and contacts that may assist you over the next few days and weeks.
