Registering a birth
All births in England, Wales and Northern Ireland must be registered within 42 days of the child being born.
It costs £4 to issue a birth certificate at registration, or £7 if issued after.
You can register a birth that took place in the areas covered by the county council by booking an appointment at any of our registration offices.
