High Volume of Calls

On Mondays and at certain times of the day (particularly 12-2.30pm) we may experience a higher volume of calls to book birth and death appointments and ceremonies. Please bear with us and we will do our best to answer your call as soon as possible. Alternatively you can book online for birth or death appointments. Please note death appointments must be booked within 5 days from when the death occurred, unless the death has been referred to the Coroner. If your preferred office does not have appointment availability please try another that can offer you an appointment within the 5 days.

About the Register Office

The Cheltenham Office is conveniently located close to the main shopping centre of this famous and beautiful spa town in the midst of the Cotswolds.

Although in the centre of Cheltenham, easy access is gained from the excellent motorway links and there is a public 'pay and display' car park next to the building. In addition, there is on road parking outside the office, which is pay and display.  A number of fine hotels are within close proximity for guests wishing to stay and enjoy the lovely gardens and surrounding tourist areas.

The Marriage Room, Reception and waiting area are housed on the first floor of a County Council building and a lift is available allowing good access for the disabled and elderly.

The Ceremony Room has a maximum occupancy of 35 (including the couple and the two Registrars) which means that you can invite up to 31 guests.  It benefits from a comfort cooling system. Confetti (biodegradable) can be thrown outside the building.
