Changes to Registration Services in Cardiff


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

From October 10th the Register Office will be based at Glamorgan Archives (Clos Parc Morgannwg, Leckwith, Cardiff, CF11 8AW). The offices will be open from 9.00am - 4.00pm 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 has a capacity of 40.

Birth registrations will also take place at Glamorgan Archives and a successful 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:


  • Monday:Llandaff North & Gabalfa Hub or Glamorgan Archives
  • Tuesday:Central Library Hub or Glamorgan Archives
  • Wednesday:Ely Hub or Glamorgan Archives
  • Thursday:St Mellons Hub or Glamorgan Archives
  • Friday:Glamorgan Archives


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

Cabinet Member with responsibility for Registration Services, Cllr 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."
