Registering a Death
A death should be registered within five days, unless the Coroner is involved (in which case the Coroner’s Officer will advise you).
If the death occurred in Nottingham city, please contact Nottingham City Council to make an appointment.
It is a legal requirement to register a death. Doing so will provide you with the documents needed to arrange the funeral and to deal with the deceased's estate.
