We have a backlog of several weeks, this is delaying us sending out certificates, you can expect to receive your certificate in around 12 weeks.
If you require a certificate earlier you may prefer to apply to the General Register Office on GOV.UK
N.B. Applications for certificates must be made to Birmingham Register Office if the birth, death and civil partnership was registered within the last 6 months (for marriages the period is extended to 18 months.)
Birmingham Register Office is still operating the statutory priority service should you require a certificate urgently.
Please check the current timescales for receiving certificates.
