Full Name at Birth

For births since 1965, we will require the full name on the birth certificate including any middle names. Where the name has changed, please be careful to put the name as it was at the time the birth was registered.

Date of Birth

The full date of birth is required for all births since 1965. 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 1965. 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 1965. 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 1965. The maiden surname is the name the mother was known as when she was born. Although this is not required for births before 1965, the information is often used as a checking point to ensure that the correct certificate is produced.

Hospital or Place of Birth

Please provide this information as best as is known. For births since 2006, the exact place of birth is required.

Month of Birth

This information is required to ensure that the date of birth is in the correct format, as the day and month information is reversed in North America.
