The Register Office remains closed to the public, however we are working and you can still contact us using the contact form below, by email or by telephone. Comprehensive information for all our services can be found on our website.
We are registering deaths and stillbirths by telephone appointment. You do not need to attend the register office to register a death. We are adhering to Government guidance and will update this information as and when the situation changes.
You can go online to Register a Birth to book an appointment to register a birth. These are being done outside the register office in 'kiosks' through the registrars windows, keeping everyone safe.
