Where and when to register a death in Worcestershire.

A death can only be registered by the Registrar of Births and Deaths where person died.  However, you can register the death by “declaration” at any Register Office in England or Wales. That Registrar will send the information the correct Register Office.   They will then send the paperwork to you. Clearly, this may cause a delay in organising the funeral as the undertaker can do little until he has the Registrars authority in the shape of the “green form.”

If you don’t know which district the death occurred in, ring 0845 603 2859 for advice.

Registering a death takes about half an hour, provided you have the information the Registrar will need (download the Guide to the right).  Allow another 15 minutes to take advantage of the Tell Us Once Service.

After the death has been registered in Worcestershire, the Registrar will issue to you two certificates:

•           A Certificate for Burial or Cremation (the “green form”) is for you to pass on to the funeral director so that the funeral proceed. Sometimes this is issued by the Coroner.

•           A Certificate of Registration of Death (Form BD8) is for DWP purposes.  Please read the back of the form in your own time. If any information applies please complete it and return it to your local DWP Office.
