What we do
The Isle of Wight Register Office is situated at Seaclose Offices, Fairlee Road, Newport. The Registration Service is responsible for the registration of births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships occurring on the Island, licensing venues where civil ceremonies may be solemnised and conducting civil ceremonies.
These pages are designed to give you all the information you need to register a birth, death, marriage or civil partnership, book a ceremony or obtain a copy of a certificate. We have also included some additional links and names and addresses of related services.
The Register Office holds all the Isle of Wight birth, death and marriage registers dating from 1 July 1837 to the present day. In addition all Isle of Wight civil partnership records from 2005 onwards are held. It is possible to request a copy certificate from any archived register.
