Coronavirus - important information for registering a birth or death

For the safety of our residents and staff given the current COVID-19 situation, the way you register births and deaths has changed.

Currently, birth registrations have been suspended right across the country. If you are a new parent, please check back for updates.

If you need to register a death, this will now be done by telephone. You will not need to attend the register office in person, but will still need an appointment. Please ring: 01254 588660 to book.

Unless the death has been referred to the coroner, it is a legal requirement to register the death within five days. If the death has been referred to the coroner, they will inform you when you are able to make an appointment to register the death.
