How can we help you...



In addition to the registration of births, deaths and marriages, the Registrars also conduct civil marriage ceremonies and register civil partnerships in Marischal College, Aberdeen's historic Town House, and in venues throughout Aberdeen City. We also issue birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates.  We offer a family history service where you can research your own family tree and obtain birth, death and marriage certificates relating to your ancestors.

Aberdeen City Council offer a Nationality Checking Service to help you with your citizenship application before it is sent to the Home Office for approval. Once approved, we conduct Citizenship Ceremonies.
