Langtons House and death registrations

Langtons House will be closed from this Tuesday, 31 March.

Please email registration@havering.gov.uk or call 01708 433481 on weekdays if you have an urgent query.

If you have an appointment for death registration at Langtons House tomorrow (Monday 30 March), you will no longer be able to attend this appointment.

A registrar will contact you to complete the registration over the phone at the time of your already booked appointment, but to do this we need the Medical Cause of Death Certificate with your name and contact number. If you haven’t already done so, you should deliver this to Langtons House, Billet Lane, Hornchurch, RM11 1XL today and post it through the letterbox in the door.

Refuse and recycling collections

Unfortunately it has not been possible for our refuse collections team to visit these roads in Upminster on Friday and Saturday: Severn Drive, Dart Close, Fleet Avenue, Clyde Crescent and Dee Close.

We apologise for this and will ensure that black and orange sacks are picked up tomorrow morning, including any resultant spillages.

If you live in one of these roads, and have taken your bags back inside, please make sure they are out in front of your property by 7am on Monday morning.
