Date of Birth
The full date of birth is required for all births since 1963. For births before this, only the year is required. We will search 2 years either side of the date supplied to locate the correct record.
Father's Full Name
This field is required for births since 1963. If the father was not listed on the certificate, please enter "Not Named" in the form above.
Mother's Full Name
This field is required for births since 1963. The name should be entered as the mother was known at the time of the birth.
Mother's Maiden Surname
This field is required for births since 1963. The maiden surname is the name the mother was known as when she was born. Although this is not required for births before 1961, the information is often used as a checking point to ensure that the correct certificate is produced.
