Appointments to register births and give notice of marriage and civil partnership will resume from Monday 7 December 2020 in our offices based within libraries in Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Market Drayton, Oswestry and Whitchurch. Our Shrewsbury office at Shirehall remains open.

  •  Please note, Registrars have suspended the late Wednesday service due to covid.
  • Completion of a PD2 form to allow a passport to be issued in a married name up to three months before the date of the marriage will cost £10.

Please note that payments for registrars services and certificates will be by card only

If you don't want to book online, you can call 0345 678 9016 to book an appointment through our customer service centre. Check the location and usual opening hours for each registration service point.

If you need help out of hours (this includes weekends and bank holidays) with an emergency death registration (for those with particular cultural or religious beliefs), please contact your funeral director. For an out-of-hours request for a registrar general’s licence for marriage or civil partnership (where one party is seriously ill and not expected to recover), please contact your GP, hospital administrator or chaplain.

Although registration officers will make every effort to see people who turn up without appointments, there are no guarantees that they will be seen in less than an hour as appointments take priority.
