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 and require a full copy of the birth certificate from the registering office please bring a cheque with you to submit with your declaration. Certificates cost £4 each.

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