Birth, Death, Marriage, Civil Partnership and Citizenship
Coronavirus (COVID-19) information updated 11 January 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.
Please note: all registration offices in Worcestershire are closed to the public unless you have a pre booked appointment.
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.
Further to the government announcement on 4 January 2021, all ceremonies during the current lockdown period have been cancelled (if you have a ceremony with us during this period you will be contacted shortly),
Weddings and civil partnership ceremonies must only take place with up to 6 people. Anyone working is not included. These should only take place in exceptional circumstances, for example, an urgent marriage where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.
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.
