To book an appointment to register a birth, please call our Customer Service Centre on 0300 500 80 80.
As parents, you are legally required to register a birth. You need to register your baby’s birth in order to obtain a birth certificate and give him/her an official identity.
For more information on registering a birth and what you'll need to take to your appointment, see our how to register a birth page.
For the Tell Us Once service you will also need to bring with you:
- the contact details, and national insurance number of the parent(s) to be named in the birth registration.
- details of any benefits the parent(s) to be named on the birth register are receiving or have applied for.
