District Registrars in Northern Ireland

The registration service in Northern Ireland is a partnership between the Registrar General’s Office (The General Register Office) and the 11 councils.

District Registration Offices

District Registrars are responsible for the registration of all life events in Northern Ireland. They are based in council offices and are employees of the local authority. For registration purposes District Registrars are under the instruction and authority of the Registrar General.

You can find useful contact information for your local registration office from the table below. As some offices operate an appointment system, you are advised to telephone before attending.
