Registration Services

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information updated 5 August 2020

This is the current information for Worcestershire Registration Service. It will be updated as circumstances change and supersedes any other information contained within our pages.

Registration offices

Please note: all registration offices in Worcestershire are closed to the public unless you have a pre booked appointment.

Death registration

All death registrations are now undertaken by telephone. Once the paperwork has been received from the GP and/or Coroner we will call you to book in a date and time for the registration to take place via phone.

A registrar will then call on the chosen date and time to register the death with you. The form for the funeral will then be sent directly to the funeral director and burial or cremation authority for you.

Notice of marriage and civil partnership

We are now able to open bookings for notice and civil partnerships for ceremonies taking place next year as well as our online booking system.

To book an appointment, you can book through our online booking system which can be found on the Notice of Marriage/Civil Partnership page.

Ceremonies

We have created for our couples an outline of the ceremony taking into consideration the current guidance from central government.

Please feel free to contact us at registeroffice@worcestershire.gov.uk should you have any questions.

We are aware of the recent government announcement regarding wedding receptions. These were due to be allowed from 1 August 2020 but have now been postponed.  This does not affect the registrar’s attendance at your ceremony.

From 8 August 2020 the government have made face coverings mandatory at all ceremonies.

Guidance will change periodically, and we plan to update our guidance as and when any changes are published. We look forward to helping prepare for your special day and thank you for your continued support and patience.
