Due to COVID-19 there are some changes to our services. 


Registration of births

 
  • The registration of deaths can now be carried out remotely, rather than in person
  • From Monday 18 May the registration of births will resume with a limited number of appointments
  • You can now give notice for your marriage or civil partnership by POST or by making an appointment to attend the office 
  • If sending 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.  Payment can be made by cheque made payable to Mid Ulster District Council, or we can contact you for payment by telephone
  • We are unable to take any new bookings for civil ceremony weddings at the moment but this will be reviewed in September​
