Death Registration Telephone Appointment


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic special arrangements are in place so that death registrations take place over the telephone.  

You do not need to collect the Medical Certificate from the doctor. Please ask the doctor to send this to us electronically.

If the death occurred in North Middlesex Hospital you do not need to collect the Medical certificate. The hospital will arrange to send this to us electronically.

Please book an appointment using this online system but DO NOT attend Gentleman's Row under any circumstances. If the doctor has not electronically sent us the medical certificate you MUST NOT book an appointment. 

The registrar will call you at an appointed time and will guide you through the registration.

Before the registrar calls please have the details of the funeral director you will be using. If you do not have this information your appointment will have to be rebooked for another day. The order for burial or cremation (the Green form) will be sent to your funeral director electronically.

Please try to avoid calling us at this busy time as we are not able to respond to you quickly. If you have any questions, please email will respond to you as quickly as we can.  


You are booking an appointment to register a death. When selecting an appointment date, please try to book this within 5 days of the date of death.


To check you can register the death in the London Borough of Enfield, please answer the following questions. These questions relate to the person who will be attending the appointment.

A death cannot be registered without either a Coroner's Certificate or a valid Medical Cause of Death Certificate signed by a doctor or GP. Please book your appointment after the doctor or HM Coroner has advised you that they have sent their Certificate to us. If there is an Inquest, you normally do not need to register the death as the Coroner will do this for you. If you need assistance please email with details of your enquiry including your phone number and we will contact you as soon as possible.
