Where can I register a death?
You can register a death at one of the following One Stop Centres: - 2 Great George Street, Armley, Chapeltown, Dewsbury Road, Garforth, Harehills, Middleton, Morley, Otley, Pudsey, Rawdon, Rothwell and Wetherby. Please see the documents section for addresses and opening times.
You can also register a death in any other Register Office in England and Wales. The Registrar will send the details on to us, although this may delay the funeral.
Who can register a death?
- A relative of the deceased
- A person present at the death
- A person arranging the funeral (not the undertaker)
What do I need to bring?
You must bring the medical certificate issued by the doctor. Without this certificate the Registrar will not be able to register the death. If the death has been reported to the Coroner’s Office they will advise you what to do.
It is also helpful if you bring the deceased person’s birth certificate or passport to help check spellings, marriage certificate (if applicable) and medical card.
