Registering a birth
You should make arrangements to register as soon as possible after the birth.
Birth registration interviews are in person at our register offices.
- Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time as there may not be waiting facilities available.
- Your appointment will take place with social distancing measures in place.
- You will need to bring a blue or black biro/ball point pen to sign with.
- We require all visitors to our Register Offices to continue to wear a face covering in public areas and ceremony rooms (unless exempt).
Our offices are small, so only those essential to the registration should attend.
Child Benefit and Universal Credit
You can make a claim for these benefits after registering the birth:
