Certificates you can get
We've been responsible for recording all births, marriages and deaths in the borough since 1837. However, during this time we've not always had responsibility for all the same area we do now.
Certificates you can get from Rochdale Register Office:
- Rochdale, Heywood, Milnrow and Littleborough - all certificates from 1837 to present day.
- Middleton - all certificates from 1837-1933 and 1974 to present day. If you want a certificate from 1933-1974, you will need to apply for a copy certificate from Oldham Council.
- Whitworth - all certificates from 1837-1974. If you want a certificate after this date, you will need to apply for a copy certificate from Rossendale Council.
