• Contact the Bereavement office regarding the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death
  • Then, contact the Register Office in the district where the death occurred. The registration may need to take place over the telephone. The latest information will be available via your local council register office. For deaths at Aintree Hospital the Register Office is in Liverpool.
  • You will need to make an appointment to register the death. This must be done within five working days, unless it has been reported to the coroner.
  • Arrangements can be made to register a death elsewhere, but this may delay the funeral by a few days because the forms have to be posted to the office where you wish to register the death.
  • You can email: register@liverpool.gov.uk.

Please note a death cannot be registered without a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death. You will need to take this with you.

The Register Office is open Monday to Friday, 9am-4.45pm and is located at:

Liverpool Register Office

St George’s Hall,

St Georges Place (Heritage Centre entrance)


L1 1JJ
