UK Birth Certificates

Recommended Posts

My fiance has an issue with his birth certificate and what the London Embassy requires.

On their website it says the birth certificate must have both parents names on it... Ash's just has his name, birth date and place. They do say the applicant's mother can write an affidavit stating the date and place of birth, both parent's names, and the mother's maiden name.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone has used this method or can help us in finding where we can get his birth certificate they're requiring. He says the one he has now is the only one he's had.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Yep. He needs the long form copy. If he orders it from the website they list, http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/, that is the only copy they offer so he can't go wrong.

Yeh he needs that long form certificate. when a baby is born in the UK the short certificate is given free, if the parents want a long form certificate or Full version they have to pay for that. for most people the short certificate is all they will ever need.

Funny you should ask... I was looking for ways to get duplicates of mine yesterday as it goes, and I printed out the Appllication Form from the Government website.

Makes sure on Q5 you ask for "Standard" and NOT 'short' copies. - they're £7 each
