When should I register a Still Birth?
The law requires you to register a still-birth within 42 days of it occurring, unless it was referred to a coroner. Even in most coroner's cases, stillbirths should still be registered within 42 days.
Where do I register a Still-Birth?
The still-birth should normally be registered in the registration district where it happened. So if the still-birth occurred within the London Borough of Camden (for example at University College Hospital, Royal Free Hospital, you will need to see us.
If the still-birth happened elsewhere, then you should normally go to the district office for that area.
