Due to Covid-19 all deaths registrations are being completed over the telephone.
Please call 01782 235260 to book a telephone appointment.
Online bookings are suspended until further notice.
If a coroner has been involved it may be necessary to wait for the coroner to issue documents to the registrar before an appointment can be made.
This may cause a delay in organising the funeral.
The registrar will give you:
- a certificate for burial or cremation (known as the green form) – this allows the funeral to take place. Sometimes a coroner will issue an alternative certificate allowing the burial or cremation to take place
- a certificate of registration of death (Form BD8/344) is for social security purposes
- a death certificate, there is a fee for this and you can buy additional death certificates if required
Douglas Macmillan Hospice is located in Staffordshire registration district not Stoke-on-Trent. Deaths at the hospice can be registered and a certificate purchased at the same time by contacting Staffordshire registration service for an appointment.
