Registration Services

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information updated 24 February 2021

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.

Birth registration

Due to the current Covid restrictions and lockdown, we are dealing with a very high demand for appointments.  We are working through those babies birth dates which are near to or over 42days.

We are currently contacting those, whose children were born in mid-January, if your child was born after this there will be a wait for us to get back in touch once you have completed the enquiry form below.  

If you have already completed this form; please do not send follow up emails or enquires, we will already have your details and will contact you once we reach the date of your child’s birth in our list. Please bear with us. 

Thank you for your patience whilst we work through this unprecedented demand for appointments, Please be aware that, because of the current Covid situation. If baby has not yet been registered, this does not prevent you from being able to claim child benefit.

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.

Certificate services

Since 27 January 2021 certificate services have been suspended until further notice for all certificates.

Due to staffing issues we will only be able to produce certificates from recently registered deaths (all other certificate orders (including express orders), will not be processed until full service has been resumed.  

All certificate orders put through before 27th January 2021 will be processed as soon as we are able to.  

Ceremonies

Further to the government announcement made on 22 February 2021, we are dealing with those wedding that are due to take place within the next few months and are working in date of ceremony order. Please bear with us while we work through these.  We, are currently receiving a very high volume of emails and enquiries.
 
Please complete the ‘Enquiry Form’ below with the details of your ceremony and we will be in touch with you as soon as we reach the date of your ceremony. Please do not send multiple emails/enquiry forms regarding your ceremony, we will get back in touch as soon as we are able, but there will be a delay.

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.
