Changes to Registration Areas



From 1 April 2021 Northamptonshire’s County Council and the 7 District and Borough councils were replaced by two new authorities – West Northamptonshire Council and North Northamptonshire Council. This means two separate Registration Districts each with it’s own Registrar’s Office.

Deaths can now only be registered in the area they occurred. For example for Northampton General Hospital this is West Northamptonshire and for Kettering General Hospital it is North Northamptonshire. If a death occurs outside of hospital, at home or in a care home then the address where the death happened determines the registration district.

Appointments can be made online or by telephone via the call centre:
