Dudley Registration Services

Welcome to the Dudley Council Registration Services booking system 

We will use the data you provide for the sole purpose of making and dealing with your appointment or ceremony with the Registration Service. 

Coronavirus advice -

Births are being registered by appointment only. The appointment will take place outside, through a window 'kiosk' style.  No-one will be allowed entry into the building (no toilet facilities will be available). It is advised to attend appointments by car and to wear weatherproof/suitable clothing for the weather. If you or a member of your household have any Covid-19 symptoms, or you are isolating, please do not book to attend an appointment until you are symptom free. Please wait in your car on arrival, the registrar will call you as close to your appointment time as possible. Please make sure you include the phone number that you can be called on at your appointment when you book.   

You are required to attend the register office to register a death in person. You must book an appointment and attend the office for the district where the death occurred. If you have been advised that the medical certificate for cause of death has been sent by the doctor to the registrar, please book an appointment. In order to minimise the risk of Covid the number of people on our premises is restricted. No more than two people may attend an appointment to register a death. Please ensure that anyone who attends is Covid free and wears a face covering when on the premises. You should arrive on time for your appointment but please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment time. Certificates can be prepaid for when you book your appointment and are also available to order online afterwards if you prefer. We cannot accept cash or cheques. The burial/cremation form can be sent directly to the funeral director from the registrar, you will be advised about this at your appointment.


Please bring your debit or credit card to pay for certificates and services as required. We do not accept cash payment.

IMPORTANT: Please read the information on our website before booking an appointment to give notice. If you book an appointment and we are unable to take your notice, you will lose the fee you have paid and your ceremony may not be able to go ahead as planned. Notice appointments are available at our Stourbridge and Dudley offices, you may attend either location to give notice. Appointments are only available to book within the next few weeks during the pandemic, we release further appointments each week. Please note that at busy times, you may be able to book two single appointments sooner than a double appointment.
