Registering a birth
Camden Register Office has suspended Birth registration until further notice in line with advice from Government and the General Register Office.
**Update** We are currently working on making our offices ‘Covid Secure’ so we can re start Birth Registrations safely in accordance with government health and safety advice. At present there is no provision in Law for Birth Registrations to be done over the phone. Please note we have been informed by the General Register Office that you can now make a claim for child benefit or universal credit prior to the birth being registered.
The 42 days legal requirement is not valid during this time.
If you have any questions, we will try our best to answer them. Please email email@example.com.
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.
