We've suspended our historical certificate service (including marriage certificates) until further notice. We'll regularly review this decision.
Weddings and civil partnership ceremonies can take place with no more than 6 attendees (excluding anyone working at the ceremony).
Where possible, these should only take place in exceptional circumstances - for example, an urgent marriage where someone getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.
We are not taking any new ceremony bookings until further notice. We'll regularly review that decision.
We're currently only able to re-arrange cancelled ceremonies to take place from 6 April 2021. Again, we'll review this when government advice is updated.

Health Walks are suspended whilst we're in national lockdown. Once restrictions ease in Hertfordshire, safe walks will continue. www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/healthwalks
Herts Fire and Rescue Service is responding to all emergencies.
We are temporarily suspending general safe and well visits for operational crews. This is to reduce the chance of spreading the virus to firefighters and vulnerable groups.
However, there may be occasions when we'll visit an extremely high risk resident. We'll assess the risk based on the questions that are answered in the questionnaire. Any visits requested that aren't classed as extremely high risk will be arranged when it's safe to do so.
