Register a birth


We are continuing to accept appointments for the registration of all births which have occurred in Lincolnshire and to take declarations for births occurring outside of the county.

Our on-line system is temporarily suspended but you may make an appointment to register the birth by calling the Council's Customer Service Centre (currently open Monday to Friday up to 18:00) on 01522 782244 and an advisor will make an appointment for you to register the birth.

They will inform you who needs to attend, what you need to bring, the Covid measures we have in place, and anything else you need to know.

We ask that an appointment is not made until the family have been discharged from hospital for at least 14 days.

We begin the collection of information over the telephone with you in your car/ the office waiting area and then invite you into the office to check and sign the birth entry/ declaration.

You can make a claim for child benefit or universal credit prior to the birth being registered.
