Registration service 

Births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships 

Important Notice

Please note that the Register Office will be closed on Wednesday 11 June 2014 due to essential training. However, if a timely burial is required they can call the Register Office to arrange.

The Register Office 

Is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9.30am - 4pm (10.30am - 4pm on Wednesdays).

We are a small office but try to see all customers within 10 minutes. It is rare for us not to achieve this target but if you find yourself waiting for longer than this time it will be because we are exceptionally busy. Please bear with us.

You will need to make an appointment if you wish to register a birth or death, or give a notice of marriage or civil partnership. You do not need an appointment to purchase a copy birth, death or marriage certificate.


Our commitment to you 

The Registration Service is committed to providing a first class efficient and friendly service to the public.

We promise to provide:

  • A welcoming environment
  • A friendly, polite and helpful service
  • Staff who are trained and experienced in all aspects of the service
  • Staff who will introduce themselves by name
  • Answers to your letters within 2 working days
  • Prompt answering of your telephone calls

The records, beginning with Domesday Book (1086), span an unbroken period from the 11th century to the present.
