More about the Register Office

Births occurring out of district

When a birth occurs elsewhere than in the London Borough of Sutton the birth registration takes place in the district of the birth.

If it is not possible to attend that office you can attend Sutton Register Office and sign a legal declaration with the details required for a birth registration. This will then by posted to the appropriate office for a registration to take place.

If you wish to register using the declaration process, your contact details will be taken for the other district to contact you regarding the purchase of a full copy of the birth certificate or certificates and for payment, the certificates cost £11 each.

Please note this will delay the issue of the birth certificate.
