Correct a death registration

Corrections to a death registration can only be made when the information is wrong, for example a mistake in spelling a person’s name. The government website will provide information on how to correct a death registration.

You cannot change a death certificate once it has been issued, but you can apply to get a note added to the original entry in the death register. You can then get an updated certificate issued that shows this note.

It costs £75 or £90 to apply to correct a mistake in a death registration, payment is via debit or credit card.
