Births, ceremonies and deaths
Our registration offices, including those in libraries, are open as normal for birth registrations and notice of marriage or civil partnership appointments.
You can still arrange telephone appointments for death and stillbirth registrations using our booking system.
We are currently experiencing very high levels of demand. Appointment availability is updated continuously on our online system, please continue to check this.
From Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December ceremonies will not be permitted to take place.
