Register a birth


We can now accept appointments for births which occurred in the county on or after 1 June 2020.

To make an appointment you must call our Customer Service Centre on 01522 782244.

You will be instructed what to bring to the appointment and the extra Covid 19 processes in place in our offices designed to keep staff and customers safe.

For births that occurred before 1 June 2020 we are continuing to contact customers to make the relevant appointments.

The 42 day requirement to register a birth has been relaxed and no action will be taken if you have not registered within that time frame.

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