Book an appointment to register a death

You can use this form to book an appointment to register a death.

Before you start

You must read the information on the registering a death pages.

You cannot register a death until we've received a Medical Certificate from the GP or hospital, or paperwork from the Coroner.

If the Coroner has been involved, you must wait for them to tell you they have concluded their investigation before contacting the registrars.

If the death did not occur in Stockport, please contact the district where the death occurred.

It would be helpful if you could bring:

  • your passport or driving licence
  • the deceased’s passport or driving licence
  • a utility bill of the deceased

These documents will help to make sure the accuracy of the information recorded. Do not worry if any of these documents are not available as the registrar can still proceed to register the death.

You'll also need to tell the registrar:

  • the date and place of death
  • the deceased's full name, date, and place of birth
  • their occupation
  • their last address
  • any names previously used. For example, a maiden name
  • if the deceased was married or in a civil partnership, the full name and occupation of their spouse or civil partner
