Register Office

Recently restored to its former glory, York Register Office is a grade II Georgian listed building set a few hundred yards from the Minster. It boasts a traditionally styled marriage room (seating 50) which opens out into beautifully landscaped gardens.

Staff at York Register Officer will advise you about registering births and deaths, arranging civil marriage or partnership ceremonies, baby naming ceremonies and renewing vows.

An accessibility guide for York Register Office is available on the Disabled Go access website.

A copy of the registration service plan 2009/10 is available via the downloads link on the right hands side of this page.

Nationality Checking Service

Applying for British Citizenship can be difficult and can take a long time. The Home Office will return any application that is not filled in properly or does not have the right supporting documents.

The Register Office can help you avoid these problems by checking your application before it reaches the Home Office.

The Nationality Checking Service is a partnership between the Home Office Immigration and Nationality Directorate and local councils.

As part of the service, we will:

  • check that you have completed your forms properly
  • make sure that you have supplied all the necessary documents
  • photocopy and certify your documents, including your passport
  • send your application safely and quickly to the Home Office.

To find out more details, please see the Nationality Checking Service pages.
