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
If the death happened elsewhere, then you should normally go to the district office for that area.

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.
