Death Booking Questions

All Death registration appointments are carried out in person at Paignton Library and Information Centre.

In order for the death registration to take place a registered medical practitioner is required to issue a medical certificate cause of death (MCCD).

Once this certificate is completed it will be scanned to the registrars office, this document will need to have been received in order for the registration to take place.

Before you book an appointment check with  the GP, hospital doctor or bereavement office that the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD)  has been sent to Torbay Register Office.

Please be mindful that certification can sometimes be delayed, it is advisable to e-mail our office or call us 01803 207130 to confirm the certificate has been received, before you attend your appointment.

This process is the same for deaths that have been referred to the coroner.
