Register a Death

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.
