Further information and updates
Birth registration appointments
We are now able to offer appointments to register the birth of babies born in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Due to the backlog of birth registrations, we are currently accepting appointments for babies born in February and March. Please continue to check the website for updated information applicable to your child's date of birth.
If you need to register the birth of a baby born in the Royal Borough of Greenwich in February, contact us on 0208 921 5015 to make an appointment.
If your child was born in another borough, please contact the Register Office in that borough instead.
Claims for child benefit or universal credit can temporarily be made prior to the birth being registered.
Marriage and civil partnerships already booked
Please be aware that your Notice is venue specific and is valid for 12 months and your marriage or civil partnership currently has to take place before the expiry date.
You can contact us to reschedule your booking once the government has lifted the COVID-19 restrictions, or to cancel your booking by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your reference number or the date and time of your original booking. If you wish to cancel, we will refund the fee paid.
Notice of marriage and civil partnerships appointments
We are now able to offer appointments to residents who have a marriage or civil partnership booked to take place in July, August or September.
Please contact us on 0208 921 5015 to reschedule your previous cancelled appointment (please have your reference number to hand) or to book a new appointment.
The fee of £35/£47 per person is payable on booking (dependent on immigration status).
You can contact us to reschedule your appointment once the government has lifted the COVID-19 restrictions, or to cancel your appointment by emailing email@example.com. Please include your reference number or the date and time of your original appointment. If you wish to cancel, we will refund the fee paid.
If you have received an invite letter to attend a Citizenship ceremony that states Royal Greenwich as your borough, and the letter was received before March 2020, please email Registrar@royalgreenich.gov.uk to register your interest for either a private or group ceremony.
Please include your full name, address and poll number in the email.
If you have received a letter from UKVI to advise that you have been successful in your application but you have not yet received an invite letter, a ceremony cannot yet be booked as we currently do not hold your certificate. We will update our web pages to advise when we are in receipt of certificates and appointments can be booked.
Re-registration and corrections
Until further notice we are not making any new appointments for re-registrations or corrections.
