Registration service Coronavirus update 28 September 2020
Our Registration Service is currently operating from the Guildhall, Keynsham and Midsomer Norton and Keynsham. Our offices at the RUH are still closed until further notice. Please wear a face –covering when attending appointments or if you are a guest at ceremonies.
We are adhering to the existing Government and General Register Office (GRO) guidance for births, still-births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships and Citizenship, and guidance for social distancing. GRO is working closely with partners from across government to develop plans for any further changes to ceremonies.
A QR code is at the entrance to the Guildhall, and we would strongly advise all visitors and guests to download the Test and Trace app, and scan the QR code when they arrive for their appointment. This will help us should we need to contact you if we identify any cases of coronavirus.
Ceremonies are not able to place due to national lockdown restrictions. This will apply from 5 November 2020 to 2 December 2020. If you have a booking with us between those dates, please contact the main office on 01225 477 234 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will find an alternative date for your ceremony to be held.
