The Superintendent Registrar

The Superintendent Registrar is the Island’s senior registrar who holds the registers of births, deaths and all marriages from 1842 to date and all civil partnerships from the introduction of the Civil Partnership (Jersey) Law, 2012. 

The Superintendent Registrar conducts civil marriages at the Register Office at 10 Royal Square.  It is the only register office in the island in which marriage and civil partnership can be celebrated.  The only other register office in the Island is that of the St Helier Registrars, at 12 Seale Street (behind the Town Hall.)  The Register Office for the Parish of St Helier is where all births and deaths, marriages and civil partnerships which occur in the parish of St Helier are registered.
