If you have been directed to this website, you have experienced the death of someone close to you. We are very sorry for your loss and we know that this can be a very difficult and distressing time.
Our Bereavement Team are here to help guide you through the necessary arrangements after someone has sadly died. Please contact us using the telephone numbers below:
01924 541015 / 541016 / 541017
Lines are open Monday to Friday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm
Our Bereavement Officers will ask you some questions and check your details to ensure they have the correct information required. They will explain what you need to do next and when the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (MCCD) is likely to be completed.
*** Due to the current situation within the hospital, the Bereavement office and on-site Registrar will be closed to families/next of kin/named contact until further notice. Registration of Deaths will be carried out via a telephone appointment with both the Wakefield Registry office and Dewsbury Registry Office. The Bereavement Team will provide advice/information regarding this when speaking with families/next of kin/named contact. Thank you for your patience.***
