Registering a death

The Coronavirus Act 2020 ends on 24 March 2022. 

All death and still birth registrations from 25 March 2022 will need to be conducted in a face to face setting. Therefore anyone wanting to register a death or stillbirth will need to attend the register office at Feltham Lodge. We can no longer register by telephone.

The doctor will still be able to send the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD) from the hospital, care home or GP practice by email.  A scan of the signed certificate will be sent to the registrar directly at registeroffice@hounslow.gov.uk

However, the medical practitioner may still prefer to give the MCCD to the informant, so you will need to bring the paperwork to your appointment.

The green certificate for burial or cremation can still be transmitted electronically to the crematorium or cemetery office. 

There is no basis in law for the mortuary or persons holding the body to require sight of the green Certificate for Burial or Cremation in order to release the body.  The certificate is issued to allow the funeral to go ahead and no other purpose.
