Shropshire Council

Book an appointment

Anyone wishing to register a birth or death should contact the service by telephone only on 0345 678 9016

From 1st April 2019:
  • Those customers wishing to attend a late appointment on a Wednesday to give notice of marriage or civil partnership will need to speak to a member of staff at the register office to book the appointment. These appointments will cost £20, which is payable by card at the time of booking the appointment. This fee is entirely separate to the statutory fee which everyone pays for giving notice.
  • Completion of a PD2 form to allow a passport to be issued in a married name up to three months before the date of the marriage will cost £10.

Please note that payments for registrars services and certificates will be by card only

If you need help out of hours (this includes weekends and bank holidays) with an emergency death registration (for those with particular cultural or religious beliefs), please contact your funeral director. For an out-of-hours request for a registrar general’s licence for marriage or civil partnership (where one party is seriously ill and not expected to recover), please contact your GP, hospital administrator or chaplain.

Although registration officers will make every effort to see people who turn up without appointments, there are no guarantees that they will be seen in less than an hour as appointments take priority.
