Application for a Registrar General's Licence


In exceptional circumstances, for example where one party to the marriage or civil partnership is seriously ill and certain criteria are met, there are procedures where the need for 29 days to pass between the date the notice is given and the date of the ceremony can be reduced.  

This may be granted after consideration by the General Register Office of England and Wales after notice has been given.

Please contact the General Register Office directly if your request is out of normal office hours. Otherwise please call us.
