Arrange a naming ceremony

Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony can be used as an alternative to a religious event such as a Christening or a Baptism to welcome a new child into the family as a form of ceremonial celebration.

Our registrars will work with you to create a meaningful ceremony which can be personalised to your taste and creating a memorable occasion for all in attendance.

A naming ceremony has no legal status and is a commemorative event only.

Please contact us at ceremonies@rotherham.gov.uk if you wish to enquire about a Naming Ceremony and the relevant costs involved based on where and when you intend upon this taking place.
