Changes to our services during the coronavirus pandemic
During the current Lockdown, Marriages and Civil Partnerships can only take place in exceptional circumstances, usually life and death situations. Please contact the Superintendent Registrar for more details.
Notices of Marriages, Birth and Death Registrations and Declarations can still be made by appointment.
Advice regarding Death Registrations
Following the introduction of the Emergency Powers Bill into law, the Register Office can now take Death Registrations over the phone. Bereaved relatives may contact the Registration Service for advice on 01720 424501 but if there is no answer feel free to phone the Registrars on their home numbers, Lesley Thomas on 422658, or Angela Chandler on 423960. You may also contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails will be checked daily, Monday to Friday.
If the death took place on the mainland relatives should contact the Register Office in the district where the death took place. For Treliske or West Cornwall Hospital, the Truro Register Office should be contacted on 0300 1234 181. For Derriford Hospital contact the Plymouth Register Office on 01725 268331 for instructions.
Copies of the Death Certificate will be issued and posted as soon as possible after registration.
