Information on City of Wolverhampton Councils Registrars service including registering births, marriages, deaths and applying for civil ceremonies.

Register Office Closed
The civic centre is currently closed and our team are available for death registrations by telephone and pre-booked birth registration and Notice of Marriage appointments only. Please submit your certificate applications once the Civic Centre has re-opened to the public. We will update this page once the restrictions are relaxed and we have re-opened.

The Prime Minister has announced that from 4 July, religious and civil marriage ceremonies and civil partnership formations will be allowed to recommence in England if certain conditions around social distancing are met.

Deferred Ceremonies
From 17th August 2020 we will be contacting all couples who have had ceremonies deferred since lockdown in Wolverhampton Register Office and the City Suite. Due to covid-19 restrictions numbers will be limited to the ceremony couple and two adult witnesses only attending the ceremony. Please do not contact us at the moment to re-schedule your ceremony – we will be contacting couples in order of the original ceremony date.

We will be undertaking Notice of Marriage appointments week commencing 6 July 2020. Priority will be given to couples whose authorities will expire by 4 July.

If your authorities have expired between 25 March to 4 July, we will be contacting you directly to offer new Notice of Marriage appointments free of charge to those who live in Wolverhampton.

Those couples who live outside of Wolverhampton should contact their local register office to find out what arrangements they have put in place.
