To issue a copy birth certificate, we will need the:

  • Full birth name

  • Mother's full name when the child was born
  • Mother's maiden (unmarried) name if she was married when the child was born

The cost for each non-urgent certificate is £11.00. The national target for issuing non-urgent certificates is 15 working days from the date of request.

The service is not currently able to offer an urgent 24 hour certificate service.
