Registration Services

Changes to Registration Services due to COVID-19

  • The registration of deaths can now be carried out remotely, rather than in person
  • The registration of births via Council has been suspended for 3 weeks from Monday 23 March, in line with advice, and will be reviewed after this point. You can continue to register your child at a GP practice during the suspension of the birth registration process
  • ​Currently you can only give notice for your marriage or civil partnership by POST.  Please send your original completed marriage or civil partnership notice forms to the relevant office, along with photocopies of your birth certificates and passports 
  • You can send a cheque, made payable to Mid Ulster District Council, or we can contact you for payment by telephone
  • ​We will not be able to facilitate weddings or civil partnership ceremonies in our civic buildings from now until the end of April. This will be under review and may be extended.

The Registrar registers births, deaths and marriages, and performs marriages and civil partnerships in the Mid Ulster District.​

The registration offices in Cookstown, Dungannon & Magherafelt operate an appointment only system. To book an appointment call 03000 132 132 or email
