Register a death

Register a death that occurred in Hull

A death should normally be registered within 5 days of the date of death wherever possible.

You will need to attend an appointment in person to register a death, a death cannot be registered over the telephone.

A death must be registered in the district in which it occurred. If the death occurred in Hull you will need to attend an appointment at The Wilson Centre to complete the registration. If the death occurred outside of Hull for example in the East Riding of Yorkshire (including Castle Hill Hospital) then you will need to make an appointment to register at an office in that district. 

If you cannot  travel to the Hull Register Office, you can contact your local Register Office to enquire about completing a declaration. It is possible for an alternative office to gather the information needed to register the death and in doing so ask you to sign a declaration. They will then send this declaration to us, which will allow us to complete the registration without you needing to be present.

Once the registration has been completed you will be able to order death certificates online -
