Register a still birth

The birth of a stillborn baby should be registered within 42 days of the date of birth. You must make an appointment to do this.

Still births are registered at the register office based in Riverside House.

Who can register

If the parents are married to each other when the baby is born, either parent may register. If not and you wish for the fathers details to be included in the register both parents should attend (if this is not possible please contact us prior to your appointment).

If the parents are not married when the baby is born entering the fathers details is not legally required.
