Births, ceremonies and deaths
We are currently experiencing a high demand for appointments. When booking an appointment, please look at all Registration offices in your area, as you may be able to find an earlier appointment at an alternative office.
If you need to give notice of intent to marry or form a civil partnership and are unable to find an appointment, please check our website regularly or consider an alternative office to ensure you can give notice at least 29 days before your ceremony date.
We are continually reviewing our appointment availability and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
