Opening hours

​​In direct response to the recent official Government guidance we have suspended on line bookings for appointments and will not be offering a service to register births or to take marriage notices or effect re-registrations or corrections. We are not currently taking any bookings for wedding/civil partnership ceremonies or for citizenship ceremonies and all ceremonies that are booked will be postponed until further notice.  The safety and wellbeing of our customers is of paramount importance. Please contact this office with any urgent enquiries by e-mailing​  – we are giving priority to death registration appointments.

We will release further information about our Service as more information is known.

Birth and death registration

You will need to arrange an appointment to register a birth or death. If you are registering a stillbirth, a walk-in service is available.

You will have to create a MyNewham account at to be able to access the online appointment booking system.

Do not book an appointment to register a birth until you have received your child's discharge letter - without the discharge letter, the child cannot be registered by Newham's registration services.

You can find out more on our registering a birth, re-registering a birth, registering a death and stillbirth registration pages.
