Contact York Register Office to get copy certificates for civil partnerships. Alternatively download a copy certificate application form and return it with a stamped, self-addressed envelope and a postal order made payable to 'City of York Council'.

The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for staff to find the correct information on our system.

You'll need to tell us:

  • the date the civil partnership occurred
  • the place where the civil partnership occurred
  • the names of the people involved

We can supply full copies of certificates, or 'extract copies':

  • if you want a full copy, you must supply the addresses of the people at the time the civil partnership occurred
  • extract copies do not include the addresses of the people involved

Cost of copy certificates for civil partnerships

Extract copies are the same price as full copies of civil partnership certificates.

As well as certificate costs, you are able to pay for faster delivery, or for secure ‘signed for delivery‘.

Copy certificates, standard costs

Copy certificates cost £10.00.

Orders are processed within 10 working days and are sent by 2nd class post.

Copy certificates, priority service

For an additional fee of £15.00 your certificates will be sent on the next working day by first class post.

You can also pay for the priority service if you wish to collect your certificate the next working day.

The fee will be £15.00 whether you are requesting a single certificate or multiple certificates within the same delivery.

Your copy certificate application must be in by 3.00pm for next working day postage or collection.

Signed For delivery service

York Register Office is not liable for any certificates that are delayed or lost in the post.

If you would prefer to be able to track your order, for an additional fee of £2.00, your certificates will be sent by the ‘Signed For’ service.

The fee will be £2.00 whether you are requesting a single certificate or multiple certificates within the same delivery.

You are able to request for certificates to be issued by both the priority service, and signed for. In this case, both fees will need to be paid, a total of £17.00 on top of any certificate costs./p>

Pay by telephone using your debit or credit card (terms and conditions apply). We do not accept cheques.
