Birth Registrations

Council’s Birth Registration Service operates strictly by appointment.

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 the GRO4 form or post to the relevant registration office.  On receipt of the form a Registrar will make contact to arrange an appointment.  

Weddings and civil partnerships

Restrictions from November 26th, 2020. Please be aware that your marriage/civil partnership ceremony must be conducted under the current NI Executive restrictions.
