Birth, death and marriage certificate form.
Apply for birth / death / marriage certificate
This is a full copy of the birth or death entry and the birth certificate includes particulars of parentage and registration.
A short certificate shows only the name and surname, sex, date of birth and district of birth. You are required to state the precise date and place of birth and the full name and surname of the person whose certificate is sought, with (as exactly as possible) the names and surnames of the parents and the mother’s maiden surname. If you require a short birth certificate and are able to give full details please complete the form overleaf. Unless the full particulars are given a short certificate may not be supplied.
Certificates for specific statutory purposes (eg Child Benefit and Social Security) are also available. If you have been asked to obtain such a certificate please place a tick in the appropriate box at 5C.
Records of adoptions in England and Wales are held by the Registrar General. These relate to persons who have been adopted since 1 January 1927 under the Adoption Acts. A standard certificate is a full copy of the entry in the Adopted Children Register which, instead of particulars of parentage and birth registration, gives the date of birth (if known) and particulars of the adoption and adoptive parents. A short certificate shows only the name
and bears no reference to adoption. Applications for adoption certificates should be made in writing to General Register Office, PO Box 2, Southport, Merseyside, PR8 2JD. DO NOT USE THIS FORM FOR THAT PURPOSE.
Applications for a standard certificate can also be made online. See www.direct.gov.uk for information.
If you apply by post please complete these forms and enclose a stamped addressed envelope and the appropriate fee in sterling. Information about the cost of certificates may be obtained from any register office. All remittances should be made payable to the Isle of Anglesey County Council and crossed “/&Co/”. DO NOT SEND CASH.
DO NOT use these forms for making applications to the REGISTRAR GENERAL.
