COVID-19 update

Until further notice, we will be registering deaths only and this will be completed over the telephone. GP surgeries have been contacted and asked to send any paperwork to the register office electronically and to include the details of the next of kin.

Any customers who have already collected a medical certificate of cause of death from a GP should write their name and phone number on the envelope, post it in the letterbox outside Wesley House and await contact from a registrar.

Alternatively, please post it to us at Register Office, Wesley House, Corporation Street, St Helens, WA10 1HF.

When a registrar contacts the next of kin to register a death, they will be able to purchase one certificate by card over the phone, which will enable access to funeral funds. The certificate will be posted out to you. Further certificates will be available to purchase at a later date.

In line with the government's advice on social distancing, we are contacting all couples and venues to advise them of the government's decision to postpone all weddings.

We are not currently taking any appointments for Notice of Marriage or Civil Partnership.

All birth registrations have been deferred until further notice.

These arrangements may change in the coming weeks, so please keep checking this section for updates.
