Coronavirus: Important information

Please read the following information before progressing.

Death and stillbirth registrations: All death and stillbirth 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: We are currently dealing with a high volume of ceremony amendments and we aim to respond within six working days. A request for a new ceremony booking can be made from Monday 20 July 2020. We currently have availability for new marriage or civil partnership bookings to take place from September 2020 onwards. Please note that it may take up to ten working days to respond to your new booking enquiry. 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 three 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. Guildford is now fully booked until 5 October. Leatherhead and Weybridge offices are now fully booked until 18 September. 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.

Claims for Child Benefit and Universal Credit can be made before you register the birth. Visit the Child Benefit and Universal Credit pages for details on how to make a claim.

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.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
