If you have lost or misplaced your original birth certificate, you may need to obtain a replacement copy. A replacement birth certificate is an official document that serves as a substitute for your original birth certificate. It contains the same information as your original birth certificate, including your full name, date of birth, place of birth, and the names of your parents.

A replacement birth certificate is a document that you can obtain if you have lost or damaged your original birth certificate. It is an official copy of the original document and contains all of the same information. In the UK, replacement birth certificates are issued by the General Register Office (GRO).

When Do You Need a Replacement Birth Certificate?

There are several situations where you may need a replacement birth certificate. For example, you may need one when applying for a passport, a driver's license, or when enrolling in school or college. You may also need a replacement birth certificate if you are getting married or applying for a government benefit.

Information needed to order a replacement birth certificate

  • Your parents' names (including mother's maiden name)

  • Your current name and address

Eligibility to order a replacement birth certificate

You can order a replacement birth certificate if you were born in England, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland. You must also be over 18 years old and have the necessary information to verify your identity.

You can order a replacement birth certificate online, by post, or by phone. The cost of a replacement birth certificate varies depending on how quickly you need it and whether you require any additional services, such as a priority service or a certified copy.
