We can now confirm that Wrexham Registration Service will re-commence registration of births on Monday, August 3 for babies born in Ysbyty Maelor, Wrecsam.

To keep customers and staff safe during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and to use our limited resources in the best way possible, we have made changes to our registration services.

No matter how mild your symptoms are, you should get a test for Coronavirus

Due to the volume of births requiring registration, we have arranged the following:
