COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We are only offering a telephone service to register a death.

We are unable to deliver the following services to customers:

  • Re-registrations
  • Birth registrations (You can now make a claim for Child Benefit or Universal Credit prior to the birth being registered)
  • Ceremonies
  • Corrections (unless an emergency, for example stopping a funeral taking place)
  • Notice of marriage appointments
  • Change of name deeds
  • Copy certificates – by post only, however, postal charges waived
  • Preliminary appointments

The Register Office has been present in Coventry since the first legal requirement to register births, still-births, deaths and marriages was introduced.

You will need to go to Coventry's Register Office for the registration of births, deaths, marriages, civil partnerships and other celebratory services within the City of Coventry.

Coventry Register Office has been located in its current premises since the mid-1960s.

A room is provided to fulfil the requirement to complete marriage and civil partnership ceremonies for a statutory fee.

In addition to registering today's events, the Register Office holds all the original birth, marriage and death registers from 1837 to the present day.

We take pride in our customer care and endeavour to give you the best service we can.


We take payment by card in person or by telephone.
