This form can be used to request copies of a birth certificate for births that happened in Islington or the City of London. The City of London refers to the area in London known as the ‘square mile’ and not London as an entire city. Please view a map if you are unsure if the birth happened in the City of London.
Completing this form will not register a birth.
If you have registered a birth by 'declaration' at a register office other than Islington Register Office or London City Register Office, please allow one month before using this form to apply for a certificate.
You will need to provide the precise date and place of birth and the full name and surname of the person whose certificate is sought, with (as exactly as possible) the names and surnames of the parents and the mother's maiden surname ('maiden name' is the surname or family name used by a woman before marriage).
