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. The certificate can be collected from Swansea Register Office or we can send it to you by second class post. We offer a priority service if you need the copy certificate sooner. 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 person. The fee is £35.00 per certificate. The certificate can be collected from Swansea Register Office or we can send it to you by first class post.

Please note that you can only collect certificates during Register Office opening hours (Monday - Thursday 8.30am-4.30pm and Friday 8.30am-4.00pm). The Register Office is not open at weekends, bank holidays or extra statutory holidays.

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
