Birth, Death, Re-registration and Correction booking advice for Covid-19

Death Appointments

Due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation no face to face death registration appointments are being offered in our offices. All deaths will now be registered via a telephone appointment. When booking an appointment, please ensure you are in a position to take a phone call that is likely to last approximately 45 minutes.

To make an appointment, please click here.  Alternatively please contact 01452 425060 to book an appointment and ensure you confirm the most appropriate contact number.

If you have not been advised that a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death has been emailed to Registration please do not book an appointment. We are unable to Register a Death without this.  Once the Medical Certificate has been scanned to Gloucestershire Registration Service this needs to be triaged by ourselves prior to an appointment being made by the family etc.  The family / next of kin  will be able to book a registration appointment after a 24 hour period has elapsed thus preventing any issues on the day of the registration.

 

Births

During the National Lockdown period, there will be limited availability for Birth Registration.

If your baby isn’t registered with a GP but needs to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from any GP surgery. Most GP surgeries will be able to register your baby as a patient online or over the phone.

Re-registration of Birth following a Marriage or Civil Partnership

Correcting an error in a Registration
For the time being, we are unable to consider applications to correct an error in a register entry unless a correction is imperative.  Please see our website for further detail.
