Register a death


If you have discovered an error in a death record, it may be possible to arrange for the entry to be corrected by means of a marginal note at the bottom of the entry. The type of correction required depends entirely on what information needs to be changed. Some errors can be authorised by the register office; others will require authorisation by the General Register Office.

There are statutory fees to consider any correction. This fee is payable to the Register Office at the time you submit the application and any documentary evidence required. Please note the statutory fees are for consideration of a correction and not the outcome. There is also a fee for each certificate requested that shows the correction note.

Consideration by Registrar/Superintendent Registrar of a correction application £75.00.
Consideration by the Registrar General of a correction application £90.00.
