The latest information regarding wedding Registration Services and funeral services, in relation to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

This information was last updated 19 July 2021

From 19 July there will no longer be any restrictions on the number of people who can attend your ceremony
(other than the numbers approved as part of the venues original license)

Social Distancing and face coverings will no longer be mandatory, instead there has been a move into a phase of 'personal responsibility'.

To ensure everyone safety, the registrars will still maintain a 2 meter social distance between themselves, the couple and guests, they may also chose to wear a face covering when not conducting a wedding. As we attend lots of special days, isolation would have a huge impact on our service.

Appointments   

We are still permitted to remain open for Notice of Marriage and Civil Partnership appointments, and parents can attend our offices to register births on an appointment basis. Please note that if you are looking to book a notice appointment, we are only able to take notices that are within 3 months of your marriage or civil partnership date. Any notice appointments that are already booked will not need to be rescheduled.  
 
The Northumberland Registration Service will continue to be there to support and assist our couples and be assured we will provide updates as soon as anything changes.   


Funerals 

Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people. Linked religious, belief-based or commemorative events, such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 6 people in attendance. Anyone working is not counted in these limits. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.
