Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has introduced the below measures for the Registration Service as part of its response to COVID-19:

Death Registration

Legislation came into force which allows death registrations to be carried out without the attendance of an informant at the registration office which reduces/removes face to face contact with the general public.  The legislation relates to the registration of all deaths and will continue in this method until further notice. 

Birth Registration

Council’s Birth Registration Service operates strictly by appointment - see office opening hours at bottom of this page.  A risk assessment is in place which is kept under review in line with government restrictions.  It is a legislative requirement for parents to register a birth within 42 days. 

We would request that parents scan and email or email a picture of the GRO4 form or post to the relevant registration office. 

An editable version of the GRO4 form is available at the bottom of this page. 

On receipt of the form a Registrar will make contact to arrange an appointment.

If preferred, you can make an appointment and bring the completed GRO4 form with you or complete one at the appointment.


Marriage and Civil Partnership

To give your notice in person, please make an appointment at the relevant office.

If preferred you can give notice for your marriage or civil partnership by post. Please send your original completed marriage or civil partnership notice forms to the relevant office, along with actual full birth certificates and photocopies of your passports.  For religious and belief marriages you can send a cheque for £52.00 (£22.00 per notice and £8.00 for the marriage certificate) made payable to Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, or we can contact you for card payment by telephone.  

You can also drop off at reception in an envelope marked for the attention of the Registrar - Reception will pass the envelope to the Registrar who will contact you in due course. 

You will be able to collect your schedule once ready.  After the marriage ceremony takes place, please return schedule by post or drop off at the reception of the relevant office location.  Staff will register and post out your marriage certificate.
