Update for Period of National Restrictions
In order to support the UK Government’s Stay at Home message – only essential appointments will be undertaken
Marriage & Civil Partnership Ceremonies
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister, from 5th January 2021 marriage and civil partnership ceremonies should only take place in exceptional circumstances (for example, urgent marriages where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or due to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery). In such circumstances, ceremonies must only take place with up to 6 people, dependent on Covid-safe room capacity.
NO receptions are allowed.
We are contacting couples with ceremonies booked during these restrictions to assist them in postponing, amending or cancelling their ceremony.
Notice of Marriage / Civil Partnership
During the period of the National Lockdown we will only be taking essential Notice of Marriage / Civil Partnership appointments.
Those couples who live outside of Gloucestershire should contact their local Register Office to find out what arrangements they have put in place for notices which need to be given.
On Mondays and at certain times of the day (particularly 12-2.30pm) we may experience a higher volume of calls to book birth and death appointments and ceremonies. Please bear with us and we will do our best to answer your call as soon as possible. Alternatively you can book online for birth or death appointments.
