Register offices

We operate from a number of register offices throughout the county.


All of our register offices are closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

All appointments to register a birth are cancelled until further notice. You can apply in advance for Child Benefit before the birth is registered - see how to claim child benefit for more information.

You can register a death through an appointment by telephoning 03000 266 000.

All ceremonies including weddings, civil partnerships, naming ceremonies and non-statutory celebrations have been suspended. Email any queries you have to

You can still order online or over the phone - see our Birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates page.

See our changes to services information or follow us on FacebookTwitter for further updates to our services.

Some offices are open on a full-time basis and others on a part-time basis. All register offices follow an appointment system, but times and availability may vary during the year.
