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.

Marriage notice


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.
See our 'Giving notice' section for more details.
