Order a copy of a certificate

In response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and following advice from the Government, all non-essential services are suspended. We are currently Registering Deaths by telephone appointment only.  Up to ten death certificates will be available for you to order at the time of registering by telephone. If you have registered a recent death and have been supplied with two certificates, eight further certificates can be ordered by emailing [email protected] with your request and contact details.

We now offer a limited certificate ordering service for  existing Birth, Death, Marriage or Civil Partnership records as follows:

  • The copy is for an event that took place over six months ago.
  • The requirement is for urgent purposes only, for example Passport or Benefit Applications. We are currently unable to supply copies of records for family history or Ancestral research purposes. 
  • Only two copies per entry
  • We will do our best to despatch your order within 10 working days. However, during this Emergency period, we ask that you do not chase up the order unless it is not received within 20 working days.
