Re-register a child's birth

A child’s birth can be re-registered to include up-to-date information if:

  • the natural father’s details were not entered at the time of the original birth registration
  • the child’s parents have married after the original birth registration.

We can only re-register children born in Birmingham or process re-registrations for children who live in Birmingham but were born elsewhere in England or Wales.

There’s no fee for the re-registration. If you need a new birth certificate the fee for each certificate is £11.

To apply for a re-registration, both parents should complete the relevant form(s) below and either send to the address on the form(s) or to Birmingham Register Office.

Once your completed form(s) has been processed, we will contact you to make an appointment to re-register your child’s birth at Birmingham Register Office.

There is currently a significant delay, but we will deal with your application as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience.
