What the registrar will ask you

  • The baby's forename(s), surname and sex

  • Date of birth and where the baby was born

  • If the birth is multiple, e.g. twins, then the time of each baby's birth is also needed

  • The baby's parents' forenames, surnames and places of birth

  • The mother's address

  • The baby's parents' occupations

  • The baby's mother's maiden surname

It is very important that the information is recorded correctly on the birth certificate. You will be asked to check the birth entry before signing, but please be aware that any errors in the information given will cost up to £90.00 to amend after you have signed to say the details are correct.

It is also useful to bring with you:

  • The parents' passports

  • The parents' marriage or civil partnership certificate (if applicable)

Each copy of the birth certificate will cost £11.00, and we advise you to buy these at the time of booking your appointment.
