- You should only attend if you have a pre-booked appointment
- Social distancing will be maintained in the office at all times
- Only the minimum number of people should attend the office. Where possible, babies and children should not be brought to the appointment
- Early arrivals or additional people may be asked to wait outside
- Sanitising products are available
- Pens will be sanitised before and after being used to sign the register page
- Where possible all copy certificates will be issued in the post. Please do not choose the collection option unless absolutely necessary
- Face coverings will be required in places of worship. This applies to guests at weddings and civil partnership ceremonies including those taking place in register offices or other approved venues. Face coverings will not have to be worn by the bride, groom or civil partners.
Your baby's birth should by law be registered within 42 days, this should be in the
district where the birth happened. The easiest way to do this is to make an appointment with the correct Register Office.
