Contact registration offices

We are experiencing an unprecedented number of queries about ceremonies. All registration requests are reviewed and prioritised and we appreciate your patience. View Registrars arrangements during coronavirus.

Aberdeenshire Registrars provide the following range of services by appointment:

  • registration of births, marriages and deaths
  • family history research
  • ceremonial services (including marriage, civil partnership, renewal of vows, baby naming and citizenship ceremonies)

The registration team can be contacted Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

Registration appointments are available via confidential telephone call with an experienced registrar.

In addition, weekly document signing appointments are available at eight locations in Aberdeenshire for the following purposes:

  • Signing the birth register
  • Presentation of original documents in respect of forthcoming marriage or civil partnership

Your registrar will reserve a document signing appointment for you during your telephone appointment.
