It is a legal requirement that a Re-Registration must be registered in the Registration district where the birth occured.

Re-Registrations for Births inside of Worcestershire 

If your child was born in Worcestershire you can make an appointment at any of our Worcestershire Registration Offices and receive the birth certificate immediately. Please continue with the appointment. 

NB. If you are re-registering due to marriage. If the marriage was outside of the UK and the Marriage certificate is not already in English, then a translation is required, as well as the original marriage certificate. These documents may be sent off to the General Register Office to be authenticated, if so your appointment will not be able to be completed until authorisation has been granted. 

Re-Registrations for Births outside Worcestershire 

Re-Registered Births can only be registered in the Registration district in which they occurred. However, it is possible to provide the information at any Register Office in England or Wales. 

If the birth occurred outside of Worcestershire then you have a choice of attending a Worcestershire Registration Office and stating the particulars for the Registration. These details will then be posted to the office for the district where the birth occurred. There will be a delay in you receiving the birth certificate. Alternatively, you may wish to attend the relevant Registration Office in person and receive your certificate immediately. If the latter is your preferred option you cannot make an appointment here but will need to contact the relevant office direct.

If you choose to state those details to one of our Worcestershire Offices, this is called a Registration by Declaration. By using the Declaration service, the details of the Re-Registered birth will be sent to the district in which the birth occurred and therefore you will not receive any birth certificates at your appointment, one will be posted to you once the Registration has been completed. To order copies of the full birth certificate(s) with parents' details you will need to give the Registrar either a cheque or a postal order for the correct amount (£4.00 per certificate) when you visit the Register Office.

NB. If you are re-registering due to marriage. If the marriage was outside of the UK and the Marriage certificate is not already in English, then a translation is required, as well as the original marriage certificate. These documents may be sent off to the General Register Office to be authenticated, if so your appointment will not be able to be completed until authorisation has been granted. 

Taking the above in to account, if you would still like to make an appointment please continue with the questions below.
