High Volume of Calls

We are currently experiencing a high 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. If your preferred office does not have appointment availability please try another that can offer you an appointment within the 5 days.



Please note: Bearlands is closed due to renovation works to Shire Hall so you may need to plan an alternative route into car parks in and around Shire Hall at the moment.

Opening hours

Open: 9.00am - 5pm Monday to Friday (by appointment only)
