Where can I register a death
If the death took place in Nottinghamshire (but outside the City boundary) you can register the death at the register office most convenient for you.
If you're not sure the death took place in Nottinghamshire you can check which county the death took place in by searching for the town, street or postcode if it is known.
If the death took place in another county but it is more convenient to register the death in Nottinghamshire, you can complete a declaration at your local office and the details will be sent on to the correct council who will then post out the death certificate paperwork to you.
Please do not go to a register office without first booking an appointment. Please note that from Monday 30 March 2020, you will only be able to register a death via a telephone appointment until further notice. To do this, please call our Customer Services Centre on 0300 500 8080.
