Wolverhampton City Council with partners such as the Hospitals Trust runs an excellent accessible Bereavement Centre from the ground floor of the Civic Centre, next to the Registrar for Births, Deaths and Marriages.
The centre is open on weekdays from 09.00am-4.00pm
The centre can help you with registering a death, burials and cremations, benefits and tax issues, and housing and other council services.
The aim is to allow you to sort out all the things relating to a person’s death in one place, including helping you to send back things like the driving license of the person who died.
