Register a birth

Birth certificate amendments and additional certificates

Birth certificate amendments

Re-registration of a birth can only occur in the following circumstances:

  • to add the father's details if he wasn't present at the registration
  • if parents marry each other after the birth of a child

Birth certificates

The registrar will advise you of the fees involved; certificates can then be issued at the registration, as long as the baby was born in Central Bedfordshire.
