At the Medway Register Office we are able to provide
certificates for births, deaths and marriages which occurred within
the Medway Council area. Records date back to 1 July 1837 and a
fee is payable.
For any enquiries about applying for certificates please
telephone 01634 338902.
When applying please state the relevant name(s), date, and the
place of birth, death or marriage so that the entry can be
identified from the index.
Applications may be made by:
Please allow seven days for a certificate to be sent. If one is
needed urgently, please contact the Register Office for more
precise information about the current issue times on 01634
If the events took place elsewhere within England and Wales,
certificates may be obtained by applying to the register office in
the district in which the event occurred. If the event was not a
very recent one, it may also be possible to obtain a certificate by
applying to the General Register Office:

In certain circumstances, marriage certificates can also be
issued from the church where the wedding took place.
The Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre in
Strood also has copies of many marriage, baptism and burial
registers, including some covering the period before civil
registration began in 1837. Certificates cannot be issued for these
older entries but details can be studied.
At the Medway Registration Office we are committed to providing
a professional service of a high standard and we welcome your
comments. We invite you to complete a brief online
survey that will only take a few minutes of your time as your
feedback and views would be much appreciated.
We hope that our services are of the quality you expect but if
you are not happy with the standard of service that you receive,
the council operates a formal complaints procedure to look into
