Is it necessary to register a death in the district in which the death occured or can the death be registered in the deceaseds home district.. eg a women who lives in Crewe dies in a Manchester hospital. Must the death be registered in Manchester?

All events have to be registered in the district in which they occur(red). e.g. if a lady lived in Manchester but had a baby whilst in holiday in Skegness, then the birth would be registered in the Spilsby registration district. If someone who lived in Skegness died in Manchester then their death would be registered in a Manchester registration district.
So, yes, the death to which you refer would be registered in Manchester.

Thanks for the info Pam. Place of death obviously makes a difference when searching the indexs!

If you're interested in obscure exceptions to the rule, the place of registration might be where the body was found eg a drowned body washed up, body found on a train etc!

Interesting Peter. As I seem to go through life in a semi constant state of confusion it would seem that dying on a train would be an appropriate end for me!
