Births, deaths, marriages and citizenship

Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic - Updated 23rd June 2020

After preparing our offices for a new way of working, in line with Public Health England guidance, we are now booking appointments to Register Births.  We are dealing with a huge backlog and are working hard to make sure the thousands of babies that have been born throughout lockdown, are all safely registered.  In the first instance, we are working forwards from babies born in March and those with an urgent need for reasons of severe hardship. 

Please see details for registering deaths during the crisis.  

We understand that many eagerly anticipated life events such as Marriages and Civil Partnerships have been put on hold during this National Emergency. We are dealing with a large backlog of cancelled and postponed ceremonies. 

We ask for your continued patience during these unprecedented times. Please see Marriages and Civil Partnerships for further information.

In order to keep the public and our staff safe, please DO NOT visit our offices unless you have an appointment. Please contact us via email at:  [email protected] .
