Registering a death
All deaths must be registered with the council. You often need to make an appointment before visiting the local council offices: (Appointment Lines– Ards: 03000 133 333 ext 40720 / Bangor: 03000 133 333 ext 40720). Unless the matter has been referred to the Coroner, registering the death should be done as soon as possible to allow further arrangements to be made. **Remember to take the Medical Death Certificate with you when registering. If referred to the Coroner: take all paperwork received.
