Our emergency burial service is available Saturday afternoons from 12 noon to 4pm, and from 9am to 4pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays. If you require this service please call 07801244805. You will need to go to the Register Office to register the death during the following week.
Registration of births and deaths
You do not need to make an appointment for general enquiries or to register a birth, stillbirth or death, however we recommend that you arrive at 3.45pm at the latest to register a birth or death. We cannot guarantee that we will see you if you arrive after 4pm.
Because of the increased demand for marriage notices, you must now pay a fee to use our weekday morning walk-in service. You must also be at the register office as we open on the morning.
The service costs £5 per person for Newham residents and £10 per person for non-Newham residents.
If you do not wish to pay the fee, you will need make an afternoon appointment to give notice. There is currently a long waiting time for weekday appointments.
If you wish to give notice on a Saturday, you must make an appointment in advance and pay a non-refundable £10 booking fee.
