Statutory Register of Civil Partnerships

The Statutory Register of Civil Partnerships starts in 2005.  It is available as index-linked digital images in the ScotlandsPeople Centre. You can also order an official extract from the register.

The register records the following

  • Date and place of registration
  • Names of both parties
  • Occupations of both parties
  • Marital or civil partnership status
  • Date of birth
  • Country of birth
  • Usual residence
  • Father's full name and occupation
  • Mother's full name, maiden name and occupation
  • Name of the person registering the partnership
  • Names and addresses of witnesses
  • Date of entry in the register

We also provide guidance on registering a civil partnership in Scotland and to the Statutory Register of Dissolutions of a Civil Partnership.
