Registering a birth

We are currently experiencing very high demand for our services.

If you cannot find a birth registration appointment at your preferred location, please try again at a later date or consider registering at one of our other register offices.

If there are exceptional circumstances which require you to register a birth urgently, please contact 0345 60 80 198


Same-sex male parents

Male couples must get a parental order (gov.uk) from the court before they can be registered as parents.

Please call us on 0345 60 80 198 to arrange to register in these circumstances.
