Hull City Council is asking only those who have an appointment attend Hull Register Office in person to try to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The office at the Wilson Centre remains open at present.
But, to protect the health and safety of customers and staff, the number of people permitted to attend appointments will be limited to one person per registration.
Those who are attending a birth registration should not bring babies to the appointment.
In the case of married parents, only one parent should attend the appointment.
Information about who can register a death and information required can be found here.
