Request a copy certificate

Copy certificates cost £11 each, which includes 2nd class postage. If you'd like to have your certificate sent to you by "signed for" post, there is an additional charge of £2.50 to cover this. Alternatively, you can collect your copy certificate from the Central Bedfordshire Register Office in Ampthill between 9am and 4:30pm. Your application can take up to 15 days to process.

Getting your certificate on the same day (collection only)
