Coronavirus Update: Camden Register Office is providing Death registration appointments over the phone only. The hospital, or GP, will scan a copy of the relevant paperwork. Once they have done so you can use the online booking option below to book an appointment.
Death Certificates: Your contact details will be taken at the registration and put into a queue. You will be called to place an order. Certificates will ONLY be issued for any death registration undertaken during the coronavirus pandemic, and will be dispatched within 2 weeks of death registration via post.
Please call the below number between 9am and 12noon for weekend out of hours services for same day burials.
If you have any questions please email email@example.com, or call 020 7974 4444 (option 6 ask for registrars) to leave a message for the Registrars team.
The Office at Crowndale is now closed until further notice.
Where do I register a death?
The death should normally be registered in the registration district where it happened. So if the death occurred within the London Borough of Camden (for example at University College Hospital, Royal Free Hospital, The National Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital or Mary Curie Hospice, Hampstead) you will need to see us.
Book an appointment
Please note: Camden Registration Service will be cashless from 17th February 2020. All major Debit and Credit cards are accepted apart from American Express.
If the death happened elsewhere, then you should normally go to the district office for that area.
I'm not sure which office to go to
Find your register office
I'm unable to come to the appropriate office
If it is inconvenient to attend the appropriate register office where the death happened you can complete a registration at any other register office in England and Wales. The registrar will pass the details on to the appropriate office who can then record the death and send you the documents you need by post. This means you can book an appointment with us even if the death occurred outside of Camden.
Please note: Any registration which is given outside of the register office where the death happened will delay your arrangements and is not appropriate if you expect a funeral to be completed within less than two weeks.
