Registering a Death

You must register a death within five days unless the coroner is involved. A death should be registered in the registration district where it happened, which in Norfolk is in any of the nine registration offices in the county.


If you cannot travel, you can go to any registrar in England or Wales to register the death ‘by declaration’ although this will delay the paperwork slightly.


To book an appointment to register a death at any Norfolk Registration Office telephone 0344 8008020 or book an appointment online.


For further information, please contact a register office in Norfolk or see Norfolk County Council's page on Registering a Death.
