The death of a family member or close friend is normally a difficult and trying time for all those involved.
We will do everything we can to help you at this difficult time to complete the formalities that are required by law.
We recognise that for you, the registrations formalities are likely to be very difficult to deal with.
Please remember that the registration needs to take place within 5 days of the death, in the town that the death occurred – not where the deceased person lived. For deaths that took place in Eastleigh, Totton, Hythe, West End, Lymington or Fareham, you will need to contact Hampshire Registration Services.
If you need to contact a registrar outside office hours regarding a funeral to comply with specific religious requirements, please call 023 8023 3344.
The following information on this page should cover all you need to know. If you can’t find the answer to your questions please telephone or email us using the contact details at the bottom of this page. We’ve also put some links that you may find helpful at this difficult time at the bottom of this.
Please note there is no charge for registering a death.
