A death in North Yorkshire can be registered at any register office in England and Wales by “declaration” – however their will be a delay before the paperwork is available to you. This could mean that the funeral has to be postponed by a few days as the registrar you visit will have to send the paperwork as a death in North Yorkshire can only be formally registered by the North Yorkshire registrar, so it has to be sent to them, they register the death and then forward the paperwork to you. Until this arrives, you will be unable to proceed with the funeral as you won’t have the necessary “green form” to give to the undertaker.
