Due to staffing challenges our Registration team is currently focused on statutory services such as the registration of births and deaths and support for burials.On a temporary basis, we are currently unable to process bookings for marriages or citizenship services, or provide certificate extracts.We hope to resume these bookings as soon as practically possible and look forward to providing an update in due course.

There are two main registration offices within East Lothian, based in Haddington and Musselburgh, where you can register all events. We also provide local appointments for birth registration only within the Dunbar area office one day per week.

To register a birth or death, in East Lothian you will require to make an appointment to visit us within one of our local offices. To make an appointment you can e-mail, drop-in or telephone us.

If you wish to register a marriage or civil partnership an appointment should be made with the staff based in either the Musselburgh or Haddington offices. Again to make an appointment you can e-mail, drop-in or telephone us.

For general registration enquiries please contact us using the details on the right. Enquiries for the Dunbar should be made through the Haddington Registration Office.
