After a birth has been registered, a short birth certificate showing the name, sex, date and district of birth may be purchased.
Additional copy or duplicate certificates may be purchased from a registrar.
The cost for this certificate is £11.
Many parents choose to purchase a full birth certificate, to save having to obtain a copy at a later date, for example when purchasing a child's passport. A full birth certificate is a complete copy of the register entry and includes the names of both parents.
Please note that anyone born after 31December 1982 who applies for a U.K. passport for the first time is now required to provide a full birth certificate to the UK passport service.
The cost of this certificate is £11.
