Registering a Birth

Skip main menu

PLEASE BE AWARE we are experiencing a high volume of calls at the present time and we are also undergoing major changes to our service.   Although we are doing our very best to answer calls, it is likely that you will get through to the answer machine message.

To enable us to speak with you as quickly as possible our top tips would be 

  • Leave a message rather than calling over and over otherwise we donít know youíve been in touch and will just take longer for you to receive our help.
  • If you leave a message please only leave one and then give sufficient time for us to get back in touch (we would suggest 24 hours).  If you leave multiple messages we have more to listen to which results in lost time we could be spending with you providing assistance.

We would like to express our sincere apologies in this regard but we are working towards rectifying the situation as quickly as possible.

Thank you,Cumbria Registration Service
