Having the correct information to hand will help ensure that the official record of the death is accurate and true. If you need to apply for a correction to a completed register entry you may need to pay a fee depending on the type of error. To minimise the risk of errors it can help if you have available documents which show the deceased’s name, date of birth and usual address.
Examples of the most useful documents (if they can easily be found) are passport, driving licence, birth certificate, deed poll, marriage/civil partnership certificates, a council tax bill, recent utility bill etc. Please note that finding/having these for the appointment is not mandatory.
