Register a Death/Order a Death Certificate

Other death-related queries

Bodies going outside England or Wales

A register office cannot issue paperwork to allow a body to go outside England or Wales. If a person died in Haringey (not in a hospital, as there are no hospitals in Haringey), the death will be registered by Haringey but paperwork for the body to leave England will be issued by the Coroner directly to the funeral director. Please speak to your funeral director or the Coroner covering Haringey for further advice:


Costs and help with Funeral Expenses

Death registration is free of charge. You will be given a document for the burial or cremation to take place and a certificate for social security purposes. Any other certificates you may need will cost £11 each. You may be able to get help towards the cost of a funeral (external link).


Advising other agencies about a death: Tell Us Once

A service called Tell Us Once allows government and local government departments to be made aware that a person has died by making a single online report or phone call. An access code for using Tell Us Once will be given to you at your death registration appointment. You then have four weeks to inform Tell Us Once that the person has died. You can find more information on GOV.UK (external link).
