Guildford Register Office
Coronavirus: Important information
Please read the following information before progressing:
Death registrations: All death registrations are now carried out by a telephone appointment. You do not need to attend the register office in person. For more information see our death registration guidance.
Marriage and Civil Partnerships: Marriages and civil partnerships can take place in Surrey from 6 July 2020. We currently have a high volume of ceremony booking changes to deal with. New ceremony enquiries can be submitted from Monday 13 July 2020. Please see our marriage and civil partnerships guidance for further details.
Notice of Marriage or Civil Partnership: If you have a marriage or civil partnership booked to take place in the next 3 months and you are a Surrey resident, you can book your notice appointment at Guildford, Leatherhead or Weybridge Register Offices from Monday 6 July 2020.
Birth registrations: Appointments are now available to book at Guildford, Leatherhead and Weybridge Register Offices. We are looking forward to seeing you but we have a large backlog of births to register, so please bear with us as we try to offer as many appointments as is safely possible. We are now fully booked until 10 August at all of our Register Offices so please select dates after 11 August when searching for an appointment. If you are registering a multiple birth, please complete the birth enquiry form and we will assist you in making an appointment.
New parents can register their baby with a GP practice without a birth certificate.
Certificates: We are currently running a limited service and are only able to process copy certificate applications that are essential, such as for legal proceedings, job recruitment etc. We can issue a maximum of five certificates per person. Please do not apply for certificates for the purposes of family history research at this time. If you require certificates for other purposes, please contact the General Register Office who should be able to supply certificates for you.
Citizenship ceremonies: From 6 July 2020 we will be contacting those citizens that have been affected by the lockdown to discuss your citizenship arrangements.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
You must book an appointment in advance to register a birth, death or to give notice of marriage or civil partnership at Guildford Register Office.
