What information will the registrar ask for?


  • The date and place of the baby’s birth. If the birth is one of twins, triplets etc the Registrar will also need to know the time of each baby’s birth
  • whether it is a boy or girl
  • the forenames and surname that it is intended the baby will be brought up with

Father (Where these details are to be entered in the Register)

  • His forenames and surname
  • his date and place of birth
  • his occupation at the time of the baby’s birth or, if he was not working at the time, his previous occupation


  • Her forenames and surname, her maiden name will also be required if she has been married
  • her date and place of birth
  • her occupation (optional), if she has been employed at any time before the birth

The Registrar will write down the particulars and you will be asked to check that it is correct. The information will then be written in to a Register and you will again be asked to read carefully what has been recorded before you sign to say that everything is correct. It is important that this legal record is checked before it is signed, because it is difficult to correct at a later date.

If you are unsure about anything please ask the Registrar who will try to help you.


If the parents were married to each other at the time of the birth the Registrar will ask for the date of the marriage

If the mother has previously had any children by her present or any former husband the Registrar will need to know how many children she has had.

Please remember one of the parents must register the birth personally; they cannot ask a friend or relative to come in instead.
