We will aim to register 90% of deaths (excluding post mortem and inquest cases) within five calendar days of the event.
It is a statutory duty to register deaths within five calendar days and we ensure that appointments are available within two working days from when customers contact us. Approximately 5% of deaths requires some local authority investigation before they can be registered. This makes reaching the national target very challenging and the General Register Office is aware of the problem.

We will aim to see 95% of our customers early, on time or within 10 minutes of the appointment time.
