About Registration Services
Registration Services – Update 30 March 2020
In response to the current coronavirus pandemic, government guidance on maintaining social distance and limiting contact and guidance from the General Register Office, we have made some changes to registration services.
The Register Office will operate on an appointment only basis. Please phone 01642 444440 to arrange an appointment. If we are unable to answer immediately, please leave a message including your name and contact number and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
Registering a Death
Registration is by appointment only and will be completed over the telephone eliminating the need to for a relative to attend the office in person.
Appointments can be made by phoning 01642 444440. Advice will be given on the information you will need to register the death when you book your appointment.
Marriages / Civic Partnerships/Citizenship and other Ceremonies
In line with Government guidance, no ceremonies are currently taking place and appointments for notices of marriage are postponed until further notice.
Registering a Birth
Birth registrations are currently suspended in line with Government advice. The requirement for a birth to be registered before you are able to claim for Child Benefit or Universal Credit has been removed during this period.
The issuing of historical birth, death and marriage certificates is currently suspended.
