Register a neonatal death

A neonatal death is the death of a live-born child who dies within the first 28 days of life.

You must register both birth and death for babies who die after birth.

Contact the Register Office to arrange an appointment.

You'll be asked to provide the following information:

  • the mother's name, date of birth and place of birth
  • the father's name, date of birth and place of birth
  • the date and time of the baby's delivery
  • the baby's name
  • the date and time of the baby's death - this is on the medical certificate of death.
