Births, Marriages and Deaths

Births

A birth must be registered in the District in which the birth occurs. If a birth occurred in another district, a declaration can be attested at any register office and forwarded on.

The registration must be completed within 42 days of the birth date.

Deaths

A death must be registered in the district in which it occurs. However, if a death occurred in another district, a declaration can be attested at any register office and forwarded on.

The 'Tell Us Once' service should let us know about changes to your council tax, benefits and the electoral register.

Funerals

The Council is responsible for arranging the funeral of a person who has died within the borders of North East Derbyshire if no suitable arrangements have been or are being made for the funeral.

Before we can arrange for the burial or cremation, the death must be registered. Unfortunately, we do not have any grants available to assist with funeral costs, nor can we help with a funeral that has already taken place.

If you are on a low income and claim certain benefits then you may be entitled to financial help with the costs associated with the funeral.
