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.

If the death took place a long way from where the person registering lives and they are not able to attend the appropriate register office, they can ask their local register office to do a ‘declaration’. This means the local register office take the information and forward it to the register office in the district where the death took place.

The receiving register office will then register the death there, and then contact you to make arrangements for the purchase and dispatch of the certificates.

Please be aware that registration by declaration may result in a delay in the receipt of the document needed for the burial/cremation as well as death certificates, so please bear this in mind when making any arrangements.

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