Hello,
Yes you may both give notice to marry at a designated registry. It does not matter that her passport has expired as she has ILR.
All the best

Last time we went to council office .they cancel our application.so we can apply for notice of marriage whether her passport expires as she got ilr
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 1 year ago.
Yes, correct. Her Biometric Residence Permit with her ILR should suffice along with her expired passport.
All the best

What is the procedure ? And how long it gonna take to process.is the one immigration page I got inside the passport not gonna work
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 1 year ago.
That may work, I suggest you consult the Registry. They may ask for a valid photo ID e.g. valid passport or Biometric Residence Permit or a driving licence or they may accept the expired passport with the ILR.
All the best
