Register a stillbirth

What you need to register a stillbirth

Before your appointment you will need to email the certificate of stillbirth given to you by the midwife or doctor to mccds@essex.gov.uk.

At the appointment we will ask you for the name, address and email of your funeral director.

After the appointment:

  • a certificate of registration, which includes any names you’ve chosen for your baby will be sent to your funeral director
  • a green slip to permit burial or cremation will be passed on to the funeral directors or the hospital

There’s no fee for registering.
