Registrars coronavirus information Important information about changes to our services We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, and following the latest information and advice published by the government. In order to minimise face-to-face contact and group meetings, which will help to prevent the spread of coronavirus, some services will need to be delivered differently. Face coverings Any customer entering the Register office at Sale Town Hall, will need to wear a face covering, in line with the Government's recent instructions. Information for parents registering a new baby in the current environment To book an appointment to register a birth please telephone 0161 912 3026 between 9am - 4pm Monday to Friday. Please do not email the Register Office about appointment availability unless it is an emergency. Birth registrations can proceed in the current lockdown, however please do not attend your appointment if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. Information for bereaved families registering a death in the current environment Emergency legislation has come into effect to allow death registrations to be taken by telephone by the Registrar, so that families do not have to attend the register office to complete a face to face registration. Families can give the certifying doctor their permission to share their contact details with us, so that we can phone them directly to make arrangements for a telephone appointment.
