Registration Service

Local authorities in Scotland provide a statutory service for the registration of births, deaths, stillbirths, marriages and civil partnerships.

Our registrars record these events (and others such as re-registration of births and changes of names) and conduct civil ceremonies.

We also issue birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates.

Appointment System

Registration offices are currently open by appointment. Please contact your local office by phone or email so that we can assist you.
