COVID-19 Register Office

Registrar Services

Please keep checking our online birth calendar for availability which we will update every few days. Unless your baby is over the 42 days old please DO NOT call the office for an appointment you will not be seen any quicker. Please keep checking online for birth appointments. 

We apologise for any inconvenience and are working as quickly as possible to try and get through the back log of appointments. Thank you for your cooperation at this time

Birth registrations

We would like to thank you for your continued patience throughout the current lockdown that has prevented us from registering births. We are now taking bookings for appointments, however If your baby is less than 2 weeks old we recommend that you wait until your baby is a few days older before coming in to register.

Please check online for an appointment when your baby is 2 weeks old or more. Please note all birth appointments are currently being held at the Civic Offices so please be sure to select this option when booking an appointment online.
