Registration Services

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information updated 4 November 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 currently restricting Notice of Marriage/Civil Partnership appointments to those that are urgent (where your ceremony is due to take place within the next 3 months). This is to limit the number of people coming into offices during the further lockdown restrictions in November. If you need to book an urgent appointment, please email us at registeroffice@worcestershire.gov.uk with your request. More information about notices can be found on the Notice of Marriage/Civil Partnership page.

Ceremonies

Following the Government’s announcement to suspend all ceremonies until 2 December, we will be writing to couples who are due to get married between 2nd November and 2nd December.

If you have a query regarding a ceremony which is booked from 3rd December onwards, please complete the enquiry form at the bottom of this page.  All enquiries will be dealt with in ceremony date order.

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.
