Birth certificate fees

There is no charge for registering the birth, but you may wish to buy a birth certificate.

A short certificate is given free of charge. This shows only the name and surname, sex, date of birth and district of birth.

A standard certificate is a full copy of the birth entry and includes particulars of parentage and registration. This type of certificate is required to obtain a passport.

Standard certificate fees

On the day of registration - £4 each.

Copies of birth certificates from current registers after the day of registration - £7 each.

Copies of birth certificates from completed registers - £10 each.
