Births

We have been advised by the Government that we can re-introduce face to face birth registrations. All the necessary health and safety precautions have been put in place, to ensure the safety of our customers and employees. We have therefore commenced completing some birth appointments. You will be asked to confirm that you or your household have no COVID-19 symptoms to be able to attend the register office.

Please note the usual time limit of registering baby’s birth within 42 days (6 weeks) of the date of birth, will also be deferred.

Whilst COVID-19 restrictions are in place, you can now make a claim for child benefit or universal credit without the birth being registered.
