Births, ceremonies and deaths
Due to current problems with our national RON (Registration Online) system, appointments are taking longer than usual. This is affecting our appointment capacity and there may be a delay in the next available appointment at certain locations. Please consider an alternative location where possible.
Our offices, including those in libraries, are open as normal for birth registrations and notices of marriage or civil partnership appointments.
You can arrange telephone appointments for death and stillbirth registrations using our online booking system. Availability is updated continuously on our online system, please continue to check this.
Please see individual notices on our pages for more information.
