What Does the Registrar Require

The registrar will need to know:

  • full name and surname of the deceased
  • deceased’s usual address
  • date and place of death
  • marital status (single, married, widowed or divorced)
  • date and place of birth
  • occupation of the deceased
  • if the deceased was a wife or widow, the full name and occupation of her husband or deceased husband
  • maiden surname (if the deceased was a woman who had married)
  • name and address of the deceased's GP
  • details of any pension apart from a state pension that the deceased may have held


Once the registration is completed, you will receive:

a GRO21 form GR021 giving permission for the body to be buried or for an application for cremation to be made
a certificate of Registration of Death (form 36/BD8) - issued for social security purposes


Your local registrar may also give you contact details for 'Tell Us Once', a service that lets you report your loved ones death to most government organisations in one go.  Your local registrar will have given you a unique reference number to access the 'Tell Us Once service' online or by phone.
