Registration Service update

Essex Registration Service is open, but on a restricted basis.

We’re currently only offering telephone appointments for death and stillbirth registrations.

We are deferring all appointments for:

  • registering births
  • giving notice of marriage or civil partnership

Under Government restrictions, ceremonies cannot take place.

If you have a ceremony or a birth or notice appointment booked in the next 4 weeks, we will be contacting you to discuss this.

Please see our coronavirus update page for the latest information before calling.

Register a stillbirth

Who can register a stillbirth

If you’re married, either parent can register.

If you’re not married, both the mother and father should attend.

If this is not possible, call us on 0345 603 7632 and we can talk through your options.
