Face coverings guidance. (Effective from 31st August 2020)
Anybody attending a registration office for an appointment must wear a face covering unless they are exempt from doing so under Government guidelines.
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.
In line with Government advice, we are now permitted to undertake Birth Registrations. You can now book an appointment online to register the birth as we have removed the date restriction, although please be aware we are still dealing with a backlog of births.
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.

Notice of Marriage / Civil Partnership
We are now able to take Notice of Marriage / Civil Partnership appointments however we ask you not to book your Notice of Marriage / Civil Partnership appointment more that 6 months before your ceremony date.
Those couples who live outside of Gloucestershire should contact their local Register Office to find out what arrangements they have put in place for notices which need to be given.
Re-registration of Birth following a Marriage or Civil Partnership
For the time being, we are unable to offer appointments to re-register a birth following marriage or civil partnership of natural parents or to add the father’s details if they were not included in the original registration. Please see GOV.UK for more information about re-registration.
