Who Can Register?
Who Can Register
|If parents are married or in a civil partnership at the time of birth or conception||Either parent can register the birth on their own|
|If parents are not married at the time of birth or conception||
Both parents must attend and sign the birth register together if both parents wish to be listed on the birth certificate.
The mother can register without the father but the father's details will not be included on the birth certificate. It is possible to add his details at a later date by re-registering the birth.
If one parent cannot attend the register office but they wish to be included on the birth certificate, that parent will need to complete the statutory declaration form. This must be attested by a legal professional (e.g. solicitor).
Where there is a parental responsibility agreement in force or either parent has an appropriate court order, this can be presented when registering.
If neither parent can attend, or there is a parenthood agreement document please email email@example.com before you book an appointment.
What will the Registrar Ask?
The place and date of the baby's birth
The baby's forenames, surname and gender
The baby's parents' forenames, surnames and their places of birth
The baby's parents' usual address
The baby's parents occupations
The baby's mother's maiden surname and any previous married surname
Please remember that the information you give us is very important and should be correct. You will be asked to check the information before you sign the register. Make sure you do this carefully. If mistakes are made for example in the spelling of names, it is difficult to change them later.
The registrar will record the details you give and print a copy of the birth registration for you to check and sign.
The General Register Office will charge a fee of up to £90 if a correction is requested after the register page has been signed.
Documents to bring with you
Official paperwork with the baby’s NHS number on such as the notification of birth or red book
