We will ensure that your day pays special tribute and honours the memory of your loved one, no matter what your budget.

Registering a Death


Whatever funeral option you choose, no funeral can go ahead until The Registrar of Births and Deaths has issued an Order for Burial or Cremation.


This is a green certificate, commonly referred to as the ‘green form’ and will be required in order to make the funeral arrangements.

In England and Wales most deaths will need to be registered within 5 days, and it is better, where possible to go to the registrar office in the borough that the deceased lived or it could delay your funeral arrangements.

Who can register a death?

Most deaths are registered by a relative, as the registrar will normally only accept someone else registering the death if there are no relatives available.

If the death occurred in a house or hospital, it can be registered by:

• a relative

• someone present at the death

• an occupant of the house

• an official from the hospital

• the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors

Deaths that occurred anywhere else can be registered by:

• a relative

• someone present at the death

• the person who found the body

• the person in charge of the body

• the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors

Death occurring in a hospital or a care home

The person who has died will need to be formally identified by the person named by them as the next of kin. The hospital mortuary will normally take care of the deceased until arrangements are made for collection.
