The main benefit will give residents the chance to complete their registrations or give notice of marriage in Rhyl or Ruthin, irrespective of where in Denbighshire the event took place or is due to take place. We aim to provide this important and valuable service in the most advantageous, efficient and cost effective manner, providing a full range of services across the County.
“With the extended opening hours in both Rhyl and Ruthin, customers will have the opportunity to choose which of the two offices is more convenient for them to attend, and they will be assured of an appointment to register a death within two working days, to register a birth within five working days and to give Notice of Marriage/Civil Partnership, within ten working days”.
