You can now book an appointment online to register the birth of your child.
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.
From 1st November Child Benefit easements via the Department of Work and Pension’s will end, this means to claim child benefit you will need a birth certificate. You can pre-pay for those when you book your appointment.
If you have questions email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 974 4444 (option 6 – ask for registrars).
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 is cashless. 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.
