COVID-19 - update

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we will only be able to take orders for certificates for events that happened since 1 July 2020. If you order a certificate for a birth, death, marriage or civil partnership that took place before 1 July 2020, we will refuse your application and a refund will not be given.

Visit the General Register Office website to order a certificate online, if the event took place before 1 July 2020

How to apply for a copy of a certificate

Telford & Wrekin Registration Service can only issue certificates for events that took place in this district.

If you were born in Shrewsbury you should contact that district office directly.

All certificate requests must now be completed by completing the online form. You will be asked the following details:

The standard (10 day) service certificate fee is £11, including postage. Due the current COVID-19 restrictions we are not offering a priority service.

Please note:  Payment will be taken on application and is non refundable. If we do not have your certificate we will not issue a refund. Please ensure that you apply only the event took place in the Telford & Wrekin district.

If preferred you can also order a copy certificate directly with the General Register Office.
