  • Visitor Information

See some of the historic documents held at the Chelsea Register Office which opens its doors to the public on Sunday 10th February 2013 as part of its 175th anniversary celebrations. One of London's most celebrated registry offices, it's the third most popular place in England and Wales to get married. Celebrities including Wallis Simpson, Prince Pavlos of Greece and the fifth Beatle, Neil Aspinall, have all been married here. Other fascinating records on show include Beatrix Potter's birth certificate and Judy Garland's marriage certificate - who wedded her fifth husband, nightclub promoter Micky Deans in 1969, only months before her tragic death.

 

About Chelsea Register Office

The Chelsea Register Office in Chelsea Old Town Hall performs marriages, civil partnership ceremonies and registers births and deaths. Many famous faces have either tied the knot or had their birth or death registered here. Patsy Kensit married second husband rock singer Jim Kerr in 1992, Judy Garland wedded Micky Deans in 1969, only months before the singer's tragic death, and Bessie Wallis Warfield married her second husband, Ernest Simpson, in 1928, becoming Mrs Wallis Simpson.
