Where do I go to register a death?

Table of Contents

You can only register a death in Windsor or Maidenhead if the death occurred in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

If the death occurred elsewhere, please contact the district in which the death occurred.

There are two register offices in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. They are at Maidenhead Town Hall and Windsor library. The death should be registered within five days.

Once you have filled in the pre-registration form we will contact you to make an appointment to register the death.

You can go to an office in a different district if it is more convenient, however that office will have to send the details that you give, to this district by post and all paperwork will also have to be sent to you by post. As you can imagine this may take several days and might hold up the funeral arrangements as a burial or cremation cannot take place until the funeral director has received the necessary documentation from the registrar.

For out of hours emergency death registrations only, please call 01753 853517.
