Kent County Council needs to be told about a death within five days, unless a coroner is investigating.
To register a death visit Kent County Council's Website.
A coroner will deal with a death if:
- A doctor can’t issue a medical certificate confirming the cause of death
- It is caused by an industrial accident
- It is sudden, accidental or unexpected
- The cause can’t be established
- There are suspicious circumstances
For more information about coroners visit Kent County Council’s website.
