A stillbirth should be registered at a Register Office within 42 days.
Sometimes a stillbirth can be registered after 42 days - the Register Office can explain when this can happen. You can name the baby in the register.
Please see register a stillbirth on the GOV.UK website, or contact us on 01225 477234 for further information and advice.
Support for parents and other relatives of stillborn children is available from SANDS, the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity.
