Registration of deaths

You must register a death within five days. You must then take the medical certificate giving the cause of death to the register office. East Sussex County Council has a  full list of register offices

Sometimes the coroner will be involved. In this case the registrar cannot register the death until the coroner has completed any investigation that he or she decides is necessary.
