Apply and pay for a copy birth certificate online
You can use this form to request a copy of a birth certificate.
Requests for certificates are processed within 15 working days after you apply. The fee is £11.00 per certificate. We can send it to you by second class post. For our priority service we aim to have the certificate ready on the same day as long as you apply by 12.00 midday and as long as you are able to provide exact information about the couple. The fee is £35.00 per certificate. We can send it to you by first class post.
For a copy birth certificate you must tell us:
- the name of the person at the time of birth
- the date and place of birth
- the name of at least one parent.
