Corrections to birth, death or marriage registrations


The entry must be held by the London Borough of Sutton.

Once a registration has been completed, a correction or amendment to the entry may be possible. This is a legal process requiring authorisation, either locally or by the General Register Office, this can take 4-6 weeks and a fee to consider the correction will be payable.

There are instances where the law does not permit the correction of an entry.

For further information and guidance regarding corrections please make a register office enquiry here or contact us to request a call back. Please give us your contact details, including your telephone number and what time you would like us to call you back.
