Register a Death in Cumbria

Register a Death in Cumbria Where & When.

You can register a death in Cumbria at any of the Cumbrian Registration Offices listed below.  You might find the informative video about registering a death on the home page first. For family run undertakers in Cumbria go here.

You could register a death in Cumbria at any Registration Office in England or Wales, but this is by way of “declaration” and the local Registrar has to send the paperwork to the Registrar covering the area in which the person died.  That will inevitably slow things down, as the second Registrar will then need to send the paperwork to you.

A death in Cumbria must be registered within 5 working days unless the Coroner is involved.  If this may be a problem, contact the Registrar immediately.

All Cumbrian Registration Offices run by appointment only: please ring for an appointment or make appointment to register a death in Cumbria online.
