You must register a death in person within 5 days of the death. We have an easy-to-use form to help you book an appointment for registering a death. If you would prefer to speak to someone personally please contact the Sheffield Register Office.

Tell us once service

When you register a death we will notify our other services and certain Government agencies of the person’s death. This is a free voluntary service and means fewer phone calls, letters or emails for you.


Certified copies are £11 each at the time of registration.

Copy certificates may be obtained at a later date for the standard fee of £12 each.
