Where we are and how to contact registrars

Update due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)

We're following the government advice regarding reducing public content and have had to make some changes to our services. The Register Office in the Town Hall is now open for face to face appointments for some services. You won't be able to book an appointment at Royston or Wombwell until further notice.

Currently death registration appointments are a telephone-only service.

It's important to read more about the changes to registration services due to COVID-19 before you contact us or book an appointment. 

Visiting Barnsley Register Office

If you're coming to Barnsley Register Office you should use the nearby pay and display car parks. Appointments can take up to an hour, so please make sure your ticket covers you. 

If you're attending a ceremony please use a pay and display car park, allowing enough time for the ceremony and photographs afterwards.  

The entrance is at the side of the building, next to the fountains.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and to allow for social distancing, you'll need to wait outside the Town Hall reception until you're called in for your appointment.

Please don't arrive too early, as we won't be able to let you inside the building. There's a strict one way system in place for your safety and to minimise any contact with other customers and staff.
