The Register Offices in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are open and offering limited appointments.
If you need to book an appointment to register a birth, please email the date of baby’s birth and your contact telephone number to the nearest office to you and we will call you back after lockdown when we are able to book appointments again. We will be booking appointments in date order and there will be a delay whilst we deal with the backlog:
Restrictions on claiming benefits have been relaxed. You can still claim child benefit if you have not been able to register the birth.
