Getting a replacement birth certificate

For all jobs a birth certificate is going to be needed, so here is how to get a replacement if you no longer have one:

  • Register on the General Register office website

  • Email Certificate.services@gro.gov.uk include GQ in the subject of your email

  • You will be given a GRO reference number

  • Need a debit card to pay with (takes 10 minutes)

  • Certificates cost £11.00 if you have the GRO ref number

  • Order over the phone, General Register office (03001231837) call charges may vary (Monday- Friday 8am-8pm)

  • You can contact the local registry office in the town city the birth was originally registered in.

The UK Government provide guidance on this via their website, Gov.uk
