Stillbirths - registration - A to Z
A stillbirth must be registered within 21 days. It can be registered either in the registration district where it took place or at the registration office in the district of the mother's usual residence (only if the usual residence is in Scotland).
The registrar will issue a certificate of registration of stillbirth (free of charge) for production to the person in charge of the burial ground or crematorium.
Please contact one of our registration offices for more information.
