Ealing Register Office is moving to Perceval House on 1 July. This means from 24 June until 5 July we are unable to take any orders for replacement certificates for births and deaths that occurred before March 2007, and marriages that occured before January 2013. This is because our registers will not be accessible during the move. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. For replacement certificates you will need to apply online to the General Register Office
