Out of hours death registrations and burial services

An out-of-hours service is available for families who need to register a death so that an urgent burial can take place either at a weekend or a Bank Holiday.

This service is for when a burial needs to take place on the day of death or the next day after.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer an out-of-hours cremation service.

If you need to register a death and organise a burial service outside normal office hours:

  • The death must have occurred in Sandwell and must not have been reported to the coroner.
  • A medical certificate of cause of death must have been issued and be available at the time of registration.
  • Provisional funeral arrangements must be in place.
