Birth Registrations

Following the announcement by the NI Executive on 28th May, Council will resume its Birth Registration Service on Monday 15th June strictly by appointment only. 

We would request that parents scan and email the GRO4 form  if they can or post to the relevant registration office to enable us to input the information to our system in advance and make contact to arrange an appointment according to the date of birth. 

Weddings and civil partnerships

Following the NI Executive's announcements on July 6th & 9th in relation to marriages and civil partnerships, it is now possible from to hold these events indoors. 

The Executive Office guidance is available below.  It provides detail on what can happen at the ceremony and should be read by all registrars, celebrants, officiants and venue managers.

A Marriage Restrictions guidance document which reflects the latest NI Executive marriage/civil partnership ceremony restrictions on 17th September is also available below.

We are currently dealing with civil ceremonies which have been previously booked or have been rescheduled and are unable to accept any new bookings until October 2020.
