You need to register a birth within 42 days of your child or children being born.
The birth has to be registered in the office of the district where it happened.
You will be given a short birth certificate for free, which shows only the baby’s name, sex, date of birth and district of registration. These show all of the details recorded in the register entry.
Many people purchase a full copy at the time of the registration as copies requested later may cost more.
Your baby’s birth must be registered within 42 days of the date of the birth.
