Apply for a civil partnership certificate

The people whose civil partnership certificate you wish to apply for must have held their ceremony in Lincolnshire, excluding North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

If the certificate relates to people whose ceremony took place outside Lincolnshire, contact the appropriate council to that area. If you don’t know the district, you can apply to the General Register Office.

There are two types of civil partnership certificate, full version or extract version, and both cost £10 each.

You will need to provide full details of the individuals’ names as well as the date and place the civil partnership and place took place. For the full version, you must provide the addresses of both parties at the time of the civil partnership, otherwise an extract version will be issued.

You can pay over the phone by calling 01522 782244 or by sending a cheque to:
