Special Celebrations: Notifying the Lord Lieutenant

  • 27 January 2016

HM The Queen sends congratulatory messages for Diamond (60th); 65th; and Platinum (70th) wedding anniversaries and every year thereafter and for 100th and 105th birthdays and every year thereafter and these are normally presented by the Lord-Lieutenant.  

Due to data protection reasons the Lord-Lieutenant is no longer automatically informed when someone is approaching one of these milestones, and so these congratulatory messages must be applied for.

This can be done by contacting the Lord-Lieutenant, Mrs Isobel Brydie MBE, via West Lothian Civic Centre

or by forwarding the information below to

Alan Henderson, General Register Office for Scotland, Room 43, New Register House, Edinburgh EH1 3YT

or telegrams@groscotland.gsi.gov.uk

at least 3 months before the special date.

For WEDDING ANNIVERSARIES, please forward: full names of the couple; address; woman's maiden name; date of marriage; name of town or parish in which they were married.

For BIRTHDAYS, please forward: full name and maiden name if applicable; address; date of birth; name of town or parish in which they were born.
