To Obtain a Copy Birth Certificate:

Two types of search are possible:


Search By Name

  1. Select date ranges from the list.
    Multiple dates may be selected by holding the Control key down while you click (Mac users should use the Shift key).
  2. Select the region(s) that you wish to search.
    Multiple regions may be selected by holding the Control key down while you click. (Mac users should use the Shift key).
    If you select just one region, a new list will appear which will allow you to select a subdistrict from within the region.
  3. Choose whether you want the records listed alphabetically or by reference number.
  4. Enter the surname.
  5. You may (optionally) enter a forename; or the first part of any forename, or an initial if you know it.
  6. Choose whether you want the search to be an exact match, or if the search should return names that sound similar to the requested surname too.
  7. Choose whether you want the output on the screen or saved to a file suitable for reading into a spreadsheet.
  8. Press the Display Results button.
Select a single Region first.
  Note: Not all entries have the Mother's maiden name indexed. If you specify that the Mother's maiden surname must match, the entries where no maiden name has been indexed will be shown in the results also. In these cases, the Mother's maiden name on the certificate may or may not be the one you seek.
