Congratulations on the birth of your new baby. In the next few weeks, it is important that you remember to register their birth.

Our registrars are here to help make the registration of the birth as easy as possible. They will happily answer any registration related questions you may have.

When to register your baby's birth

When your baby is born, you should register their birth within 42 days.

The birth must be registered in the register district where the birth took place.

If you live in Bracknell Forest but the baby was born outside of the borough, you can complete a declaration of birth with us. We will send the declaration to the correct register office who will then register the birth and issue your certificates. If you would like us to do this for you, please check what method of payment is accepted by the district that the child is being registered.
