Municipal Buildings will close on Friday 20 December and re-open on Thursday 2 January. You will not therefore be able to apply for certificates in person or by telephone during this period.
If you wish, you can apply online or by post and we will deal with your application when our office opens again on Thursday 2 January.
Applying for certificates
Blackpool registration service holds the original records of all the births, marriages and deaths that have been registered within its district since 1July 1837 up to the present day.
We also hold Civil Partnership records registered in Blackpool since 5 December 2005.
If the event for which you require a certificate took place in Blackpool, then we will hold the record. If the event took place in Fylde or Wyre, then we may also hold the record. If in doubt where the life event took place, search for Lancashire birth, marriage and death certificates. The website will tell you which registration service holds the record.
