Changes to registration services

Registration services in Cardiff will change temporarily over the winter, with the registrations of births, marriages and civil partnerships moving from City Hall while the building is closed for essential maintenance.

From Tuesday 10 October, the Register Office will be based at Glamorgan Archives (Clos Parc Morgannwg, Leckwith, Cardiff, CF11 8AW). The offices will be open 9am - 4pm, Monday - Friday.

All copies of birth, marriage, civil partnership and death certificates will be issued from the new premises, which will hold all statutory birth, marriage, civil partnership and death records.

Glamorgan Archives will also host all legal register office weddings and civil partnerships, where only the couple plus two witnesses are in attendance.

Larger marriage and civil partnerships, which currently take place in the St David's Suite at City Hall, will move to the newly licenced Llandaff Suite on the first floor of the historic Insole Court. The suite offers two rooms - the Cedar Room, which holds 20 guests, and the Walnut Room which holds 40.

Births will also be registered at Glamorgan Archives and a service providing birth registrations in Hubs around the city, by appointment only, will also be expanded.

Bookings can be made on the Cardiff Register Office website for the following locations:

  1. Monday: Llandaff North & Gabalfa Hub or Glamorgan Archives

  2. Tuesday: Central Library Hub or Glamorgan Archives

  3. Wednesday: Ely Hub or Glamorgan Archives

  4. Thursday: St Mellons Hub or Glamorgan Archives

  5. Friday: Glamorgan Archives

Deaths will continue to be registered at the Thornhill Cemetery offices.

Cardiff Council's cabinet member with responsibility for Registration Services, Dan De'Ath, said: "These temporary changes will expand our successful trial of providing birth registration services in hubs and enable the seamless continuation of all Registration Services to residents while essential works are carried out to ensure City Hall remains fit for purpose, as a heritage venue of historical significance, both now and for future generations."
