Registering a birth


Birth registration

All births should be registered within 42 days.

Birth registration interviews are in person at our register offices.

  • Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time as there may not be waiting facilities available.
  • Our offices are small, only those essential to the registration should attend. Where the parents are married or in a civil partnership, only one parent can sign the register.
