Copy certificates

COVID-19 Service Update - 

The Registration Service is an essential public service and will continue to provide a certificate service during the current government lockdown period.

During the current pandemic certificates when available will be posted to you.  It will not be possible to come to the office and collect your certificate.

Please be aware that as we are unable to access records on a daily basis we have had to suspend our premium next day service.

You can order birth, death, marriage or civil partnership copy certificates from us for any event that was registered in the Hull Registrations district.

We can only provide certificates for events that occurred in Hull. 

If the life event occurred outside of Hull you must apply to the district in which it occurred for copy of the record.  For example, if a baby was born in Castle Hill Hospital, Cottingham you need to apply to the East Riding Register Office or through the General Register Office.

If you recently married in a church then it is possible the church will still hold the records, in which case any copy must be obtained from the church.

How to order a copy certificate

Postal service

Currently we are only able to offer our standard postal service which requires a payment of £11 for each certificate, there is no additional postage cost. If you are wanting the certificate(s) to be posted, you must select this option when completing the online form.

We currently have limited access to our records and it may not be possible to achieve our 5 day target at this time.  Please allow 10 working days for your certificates to be posted to after placing your order. 

We accept no responsibility for the safe delivery of certificate(s) once they have left us and entered the postal system.
