Registration: Advice on 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.
Please contact 01452 425060 to book an appointment and ensure you confirm the most appropriate contact number. If you have a physical Medical Certificate of Cause of Death you will be asked to email an image of it, if you have not been given one it will have been emailed to us directly.

We are currently unable to undertake any Birth Registrations in line with the Prime Minister’s announcement on the 23rd March 2020.
Birth registration appointments will now be deferred until we are through the current pandemic period. A claim for child benefit or universal credit can be made prior to the birth being registered, where they have not been able to do so because of the measures currently in place.
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.
