This is a new site that we are testing!
We are redesigning and improving the Cumbria County Council website which is why these new pages are different.
Information you need to provide when registering a death.
When you register a death, there are certain documents and information which are helpful to make sure we get an accurate registration.
When someone has died, it is helpful if you can bring the following to the appointment:
We need the MCCD for the registration. The MCCD should be completed as normal by the appropriate medical professional. It will be scanned and emailed directly to us with details of the next of kin and their telephone contact details.
This means that documents won't need to be posted or hand delivered to the register office.
If you receive a paper copy MCCD from the medical professional, please ask them to send it directly to us with details of the next of kin. If this isn't possible please pass it to your funeral director who will drop this at our local office for action.
