Births & naming ceremonies

Introduction

Having a baby? Here you can find out about registering your new born, applying for a certificate and more...

Before continuing, here are some things you need to know:

  • by law, all babies need to be registered within 42 days
  • Sutton offers an appointment only service for birth registrations
  • only babies born in Sutton can be registered by our staff
  • if a baby is born outside of Sutton, our staff can take a declaration of that and forward to the correct registration office - payment for this must be by personal cheque
  • when visiting the Register Office for the ceremony, please make sure you get to us with time to spare.
