Petition Action

Allow deaths to be registered remotely

Petition Details

We want the Government to allow deaths to be registered in line with the temporary provisions of the Coronavirus Act 2020, which allowed deaths to be registered remotely, medical practitioners to sign death certificates without having attended the deceased, and documents be submitted electronically

Additional Information

We believe this would be a more efficient, cost effective, modern approach, and would:

- Benefit bereaved families by allowing them to register a death remotely without a physical appointment.
- Create opportunities for registrars to work from home should the need arise
- Reduce restrictions on completing documentation associated with a death
- Reduce the impact on the environment (reducing the need to travel to appointments)
