Birth certificate amendments
Re-registration of a birth may be required if there is a need to change the details of the original registration because of a change in circumstances. Corrections may be necessary if a mistake was made on the original registration.
Both are carried out by the Register Office by appointment only.
There are no admin fees for corrections and re-registrations. However, you will need to purchase new certificates.
You can find this and a list of all our fees on the Register Office fees page.
Within the first year of a child's birth registration, you can change or amend a child's forename. There is an administration fee of £15 for this and an appointment is required. Please contact us for further information. You will also need to purchase new certificates.
See our opening hours and accessibility page.
