Copy certificates of civil partnerships

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9.00am on Friday 24 November and 6.00pm on Saturday 25 November, you'll be unable to view documents online during this time.

Contact York Register Office to get copy certificates for civil partnerships.

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 'extracts':

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

Cost of copy certificates for civil partnerships

If you apply for copies in person at the Register Office, we will supply your certificate(s) as soon as possible; this is usually within 30 minutes of submitting your application, on payment of £21.

Alternatively, costs are:

  • £18 if you wish us to send your certificate by first class post on the same day we receive your application
  • £31 if you wish us to send your certificate by guaranteed next day delivery and apply before 3pm

Copy certificate application forms are available to download. Post your completed form to York Register Office including a stamped, self-addressed envelope and your payment.

We accept the following methods of payment:

  • credit or debit card (in person or by telephone)
  • cash (in person only)
  • postal orders, made payable to 'City of York Council'

Please note: we do not accept cheques.
