When someone dies, there are many decisions and arrangements to be made. Unfortunately these decisions and arrangements are required at a time of great personal distress and sadness.
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 bereavement guide 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.
- Once you have registered the death
- Tell Us Once

- What you will need to do next
- Letting organisations know
