Order a certificate


Certificates are available either same day, or after 5 working days. See our fees.

Certificates can be issued at the Register Office until 3.45pm, this is to give staff sufficient time to locate and issue as required before the office closes at 4pm.  

Certificates ordered by telephone are only issued until 2.30pm (same day service certificate issue is subject to availability).

Cheques, postal orders or International Money Orders that can be presented in a UK bank should be made payable to the 'South Tyneside Council', and sent to South Tyneside Register Office, 10 Broughton Road, South Shields, Tyne and Wear, NE33 2RN with your order form.  

Card payments can be made by telephone and cash is accepted at the counter. Please do not send cash through the post.  

We will not issue a copy certificate until we have contacted you to confirm your order and received your payment.
