Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Big plans, bright future

Births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships

The Register Office is home to both the Registration Service and Bereavement Services.

We hold records for births, deaths, and marriages dating back to 1837, civil partnerships dating back to 2005 and burial records for Stockton Borough's five cemeteries starting from 1869.


Searching for a record

The records we hold were previously accessed through Stockton Roots which has now been re-launched. The records are still there to access, however, improvement work continues to further enhance and develop this service for you.
