The new venue offers improved facilities for those who use the Register Office, and will offer a greater choice of rooms for weddings and civil partnerships.
The new office is much larger and includes separate waiting areas for people who are registering a birth to those who are registering a death.
There are several rooms of different sizes to choose from for weddings, civil partnerships, renewal of vows and naming ceremonies all of which are newly refurbished. And there are attractive areas inside and outside for photographs.
Families are well catered for with a parent and baby room, and all the accommodation is on one level.
Our Cabinet Member for Health and Communities, Councillor Carol Hart, said:
“The register office has been in New Beetwell Street for over 40 years but wasn’t giving us the opportunity to offer the sort of services we want to.
“Our new office is in the Town Hall, and will be a much better place to visit to register a birth or death, celebrate getting married or a civil partnership.”
The new register office gives more space for the historic registers containing entries of all the births, deaths and marriages in Derbyshire since 1837.
The Register Office opening hours remain the same, Monday to Friday 9am to 4:30pm. The contact numbers have changed to tel: 01629 533110, 01629 533111 or 01629 53112.
