Registering a birth
You can now book an appointment online to register the birth of your child. We are creating booking slots to allow earlier births to be registered first. This is to ensure we adhere to a phased approach. Below is an outline of the birth registration schedule, detailing the dates we shall prioritise registrations:
|Child Birth date/period||Registration priority period|
|On or before 31st May 2020||Thursday 23rd July – Thursday 30th July|
|On or before 30th June 2020||Friday 31st July – Thursday 6th August|
|Open for all registrations||Friday 7th August|
Please note, if you do miss the priority period for the birth of your child, you will still be able to make an appointment online.
All dates are subject to change based on any further government guidance.
Entry into the Register Office is by appointment only to adhere to social distancing requirements. If you do not have an appointment you will not be able to access the building.
If you have questions email email@example.com or call 02079744444 (option 6 – ask for registrars).
The 42 days legal requirement is not valid during this time.
Where do I register a birth?
You should register a birth in the borough where the baby was born. If your baby was born in the London Borough of Camden, please make an appointment.
Please note: Camden Registration Service will be cashless from 17th February 2020. All major Debit and Credit cards are accepted apart from American Express.
Do I need to get more than one copy of the birth certificate?
You are advised to purchase a minimum of 3 full certificates to be used for official purposes. You can buy extra certificates at your registration appointment.
