Death Registration by appointment only

Deaths

Registrars will continue to register deaths remotely. Please remember although you will not attend for a face to face appointment, our Registrars will still be there to help you and they will guide you through this process.

It is the responsibility of the GP or Hospital Doctor (if the death occurred in hospital) to email a Form 11,’Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD)’ to the Registrar.  This should be the Registrar in the local area, as identified by the informant.  The informant is often a family member but could be the Funeral Director. It would help if the contact details of the informant/family member or the Funeral Director are included with the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. If no contact details are included it is then the responsibility of the informant to contact the Registration office.

The original Medical Certificate of Cause of Death should then be posted to the office of the Registrar by the GP or Hospital Doctor and once received the Registration process will begin.

It may take more than one phone call to finalise the registration process. Due to this, you no longer need to be register a death within an 8 day period.

If the death is to be registered in Stirling then the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD) should be emailed to

Still-birth

Registrars will continue to carry out still-birth registrations remotely. There will be no face to face appointments.  Please call to speak to a Registrar if you would like to discuss any registration requirement during these revised arrangements.  We understand that you still need support during this difficult time and our Registrars are here to help.

In order to register the still-birth it is the responsibility of the Midwife or Hospital Doctor to email Form 6 ‘Medical Certificate of Cause of Still-birth’ to the Registrar in the local area as identified by the informant. The informant is often a family member or if that’s not possible, the Funeral Director.  It would help if contact details of this informant/family member or Funeral Director could be included with the Medical Certificate of Cause of Still-birth.  If no contact details are included it is then the responsibility of the informant to contact the Registration office to start the process of registration.

The original Medical Certificate of Cause of Still-birth should then be posted to the office of the Registrar by the Midwife or Hospital Doctor.

Once an emailed Medical Certificate of Cause of Still-birth is received by the registration team the process of registration can begin.

It may take more than one phone call to finalise the registration process.  Due to this, still-births no longer need to be registered within a 21 day period.
