What Documents are Required for Birth Certificate?

Birth Certificate Paperwork

Ordering a replacement birth certificate can seem like a daunting task – but it doesn’t have to be. Read on to find out how UK Official Certificates can help with your application.

What do you need to order a replacement birth certificate?

If you’re registering a birth for the first time or ordering a replacement birth certificate for either yourself or another, you’ll need the same information.

This can include the following:

  • Place and date of the birth
  • Name, surname, and sex of the applicant
  • Name, surnames, address, and employment of the applicant’s parents
  • Mother’s maiden surname
  • Place and dates of parents’ birth

Be aware that if you’re applying for a birth certificate via your local registry office, you’ll also need to take at least one form of identification when you go to apply. Plus, if you’re going solo to register the birth of your child, you may need proof of paternity from the other parent. That’s also not to mention that any errors in this information can lead to delays and even rejection.

UK Official Certificates eliminates both this administrative labour and the likelihood of delays. Whether you’re applying for a replacement birth certificate for yourself or another, we’ll only require accurate information about the applicant.

What’s more, we also cross-reference all applications for birth certificates with official databases. This eliminates the likelihood of errors and delays down the line, meaning that we can deliver within our super speedy promised timeframe in 99.99% of all applications.
