Marriages and civil partnerships - from 10 July 2020
We're now offering appointments to give notice of marriage/civil partnership. Priority will be given to couples who have a pre-arranged booking or who had to rearrange their ceremony due to coronavirus.
You can also now book marriage and civil partnership ceremonies at the Register Office again, subject to availability. Guest numbers and dates will be limited due to government guidelines on social distancing.
For more information about any of our services, please call us on 01642 729004.
You can now book an appointment to register a birth at Middlesbrough Register Office. The demand for appointments is high, but we'll try to fit you in as soon as possible.
If you had a baby in Middlesbrough in February, March and April
You can now make an appointment by ringing the Register Office on 01642 729004.
