When should I register a death?
The law requires you to register a death within five days of it occurring, unless it was referred to a coroner. Even in most coroner's cases, deaths should still be registered within seven days.
Death Certificates: Please purchase your certificates online when you make your appointment. If you are unable to do so please use the link below to order online after your appointment.
Certificates will be dispatched within 1 week of death registration via post.
Coroners post mortem: If you have received confirmation that the coroner has completed their work and have sent the relevant paperwork to the register office please book an appointment online.
Coroner’s Inquest: if you have received confirmation that the coroner has completed their work and have sent the relevant paperwork to the register office please use the link below to order the certificates online. You do not need to attend the Register Office.
If you have any questions please email email@example.com, or call 020 7974 4444 (option 6 ask for Registrars) to leave a message for the Registrars team.
The Office at Crowndale is closed for death registrations until further notice.

Light and Hope
This year has brought grief, loss and uncertainty to many across Camden. Our Light and Hope memorial website brings us together to reflect, remember and honour those who have lost their lives. The site welcomes contributions from all faiths and none, so that we can learn and understand how others cope with their loss and grief.
As we are unable to meet physically, our hope for this site is that people will be able to come together in a safe way. The memorial book will remain open into the New Year and for as long as required, and we are also planning an outdoor event to be held in 2021 once social distancing restrictions are eased.
We would very much appreciate it if you would take the opportunity to share your tributes, memories and reflections. We hope this provides comfort for those who have experienced loss. Share your message with us.
