New Lincoln Diocesan Registrar takes up post

Julie Robinson, partner at Roythornes Solicitors, has taken up her post as Registrar to the Diocese of Lincoln and Legal Secretary to the Bishop of Lincoln today, 1 September. At the same time, the Diocesan Registry has relocated to the offices of Roythornes Solicitors in Enterprise Way, Spalding.

The Registrar and her team will deal with a wide range of ‘behind the scenes’ matters that are part and parcel of the smooth running of a Church of England diocese, ranging from applications to carry out works to churches, to issuing common marriage licences on behalf of the bishop and advising on ecclesiastical law.

Speaking this morning, Julie welcomed the challenge: “I am delighted to be in post as Registrar and looking forward to getting to know all of the parishes in the diocese. It is a real privilege to be part of the team.”

Julie will be assisted by the Registry Clerk, Bridget Ley. They can be contacted on 01775 842557 or by email at
