Registering a death during the bank holiday

Please call 0208 359 2000 between 9am and 10am

On bank holidays, a registrar is on call between 9am-10am for same day burials and cremations. Once your details have been taken, the registrar will contact you.


We hold records of all deaths that took place within Barnet from 1837. We can supply certified copies of these records for a small fee. A certified copy is not a photocopy; it is a document that can be used for legal purposes.

We also provide advice and help on correcting death entries that may have to be processed through the General Register Office.

Please contact us to book an appointment for a death registration or a stillbirth registration.
