Copies of Certificates

What you need to know:


  • You can only purchase copy birth, death or marriage certificates if the event occurred in the London Borough of Sutton.

  • The fee for a standard birth, death or marriage certificate is £11.00.  The Register Office will prepare and post your certificate(s) second class within 15 working days.   

  • We also offer a priority service whereby the copy certificate(s) can be collected or posted the next working day. The fee is £35.00 and applications received by 3pm will be ready for the next working day.  You do have the option to collect from Sutton Register Office between 9.00am to 10.00am (the following day) and if not collected during this time the certificate(s) will be sent by first class post that day.

Ordering a Copy Certificate

Please note:

If you have very little or no detail regarding a registration aside from a name, then you can contact the General Register Office who can do a more in-depth search for all the districts in England and Wales.
