How do I get a replacement copy of my full, long form, UK birth certificate?

If you have misplaced or lost your UK birth certificate and require a replacement, you can order an official, certified copy online. In nearly all circumstances a full, long form certificate will be required which normally contains the following details:

  • When and where born
  • Name
  • Sex
  • Name and surname of father
  • Name, surname and maiden name of mother
  • Occupation of father
  • Signature, description and residence of informant
  • When registered
  • Signature of registrar
  • Name entered after registration

In some cases, dependent upon what the birth certificate is needed for, the certificate may need to have been issued within the last three months. No matter what the reason you require a replacement birth certificate, UK Document Services can help.


The most effective way to get the ball rolling on this, is for you to order online. Simply complete all the relevant fields on the order form and the order will be processed accordingly.
