Why deaths must be registered in person again from tomorrow

Rob George 24th Mar, 2022 Updated: 24th Mar, 2022

DEATHS must be registered face to face from tomorrow (Friday) as the Coronavirus Act 2019 comes to an end.

For deaths within Worcestershire this means informants must attend an appointment at one of the Worcestershire register offices.

Once the paperwork has been received from the Doctor and/or Coroner, informants will need to book an appointment via Worcestershire County Council’s website

Hannah Perrott, assistant director for communities at Worcestershire County Council said: “We understand that losing someone is a difficult experience. Our staff are continuing to ensure that the process of registering a death is as smooth as possible.

“The return of in-person registration means that we are able to offer an understanding face to face approach to help support residents during what can often be a challenging time.”

The change comes as the temporary national guidance ends.
