Correct a civil partnership certificate

If an error is discovered on a certificate, it may be possible for a correction to be made. This process is used when incorrect information is given unknowingly.

A correction cannot be made in the case of a person changing their mind about the information that was originally given.

An application for a correction needs to be made directly to the General Register Office (GRO) as corrections can only be made by them. You can call GRO on 0300 123 1837.
