Changes to registration services

To keep customers and staff safe during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and to use our limited resources in the best way possible we have made changes to our registration services. Our current priority is arranging and providing death registrations.


We are experiencing an unprecedented number of enquiries. We completely understand, but ask that customers remain patient. Please be assured we will respond to enquiries as soon as we can, but there will inevitably be a delay. To postpone or rearrange a ceremony already booked with the registration team please email:

We are not currently taking bookings for any ceremonies

Registrations and notices

We are postponing birth registrations, notice of marriage and civil partnership appointments until further notice.

We will accept email orders for copy certificates, but these will be dealt with as lower priority and would encourage all customers to order online if they can, email:

We have suspended our fast track certificate ordering system
