A guide to the loss of a loved one

 When somebody close to you dies it is a very difficult time. A death must normally be registered in the district where the death happens within five days, unless the coroner is conducting an investigation when the timescale can be extended. Local undertakers are very supportive at such a raw time and can help guide those left behind through the first days.  If the practice Doctors have been caring for a patient who dies at their home then the practice are usually able to issue a death certificate. As a practice we aim to do this as soon as possible but it can take up to 2 working days. Once a death certificate has been issued, then the death needs to be registered. This can be done  by booking an appointment online at:

or ring north Yorkshire county council asking for the Harrogate Registry office on 01609 780780
