Births, Deaths and Marriages
Our Register Office is currently closed, except to people with pre-booked marriages, civil partnerships, citizenships or birth appointments.
Death Registrations are currently being processed by telephone.
All copy certificates can be simply and efficiently ordered and paid for online.
If you wish to order certificates for a birth, death, marriage or civil partnership which took place within the Borough of Merthyr Tydfil, please do so using the following link and the certificate(s) will be posted out to you.
Congratulations on your new arrival!
We are arranging appointments to register births. If you have had a baby in Merthyr Tydfil but have not completed a form yet then please do so by following the link below and contact us on (01685) 727333 where an appointment will be allocated to you. Please fully complete the form, as accurately as possible, it will help the Registrar prepare for your appointment. We require the completed form before we are able to schedule an appointment.
We have now caught up with the backlog and have attempted to make contact with everyone who submitted a form to us prior to 19th April 2021. If you have submitted an application form but are yet to arrange an appointment then please contact us on (01685) 727333 where an appointment will be allocated to you during the call.
To keep everyone safe it is important that we follow social distancing guidelines and so we must make the appointment as short as possible. We will use the information submitted to assist with the birth registration. Your allocated appointment will be two-fold. The first part of the appointment will be conducted over the telephone and the second part of the registration in person with the registrar, when you will check and sign the register page.
