Order a copy of a certificate

To order a birth, marriage or death certificate you will need to contact the local Register Office which holds registers for where the event was registered or the General Register Office at Southport. You will need to provide the full name(s), year and quarter of the registration and the volume and page number of the entry.

Some local Register Offices may require additional information for certain certificates, such as parents’ names for births in the last 50 years.

This is a chargeable service, and fees may vary between local register offices.

More information about civil registration in Birmingham and how to apply for certificates can be found at Information on the General Register Office at Southport and how to apply for certificates can be found at
