Request a copy civil partnership certificate

We can provide copy civil partnership certificates when you need an official replacement or are researching your family tree.

If the civil partnership was not in Gateshead, you will need to apply for the certificate in the district where it took place. You can find the Register Office for that area at

Request a copy civil partnership certificate

Details required

You will need to provide the following information about the persons named on the certificate:

  • full names of both partners
  • date of partnership registration

Without these details we will be unable to issue a certificate. If you cannot provide this information and would like further advice, please contact the Registrars Office.

There are two types of certificate, full and extract.

Full certificate

A full certificate shows all the information contained in the civil partnership record, including the addresses for the civil partners at the time the civil partnership was registered.

For a full certificate, you must also provide the full addresses of both civil partners at the time their civil partnership was registered. 

Extract certificate

An extract certificate does not show the addresses for the civil partners at the time the civil partnership was registered. If the addresses are not provided, an extract certificate will be issued.

Certificate costs

View our fees and charges page for copy certificate costs. Payment is required at the time of requesting the certificate.

Standard service

For standard requests, certificates are normally available for collection or posted out within 15 days, although it may take longer when demand is high.

If you need your certificate for a specific date that is less than 15 working days away, plus an allowance for delivery time, we advise you to use the priority service.

Priority service

For priority requests, the certificate will be available for collection or posted out the next working day. For this service, we must receive your application by 2pm to guarantee next working day postage or collection.
