Copy certificates

You can order birth, death, marriage or civil partnership copy certificates from us for an event that took place in Hull more than one month ago.

To obtain a certificate for an event that was registered within the last month please contact 01482 300 300.

We can only provide certificates for events that occurred in Hull. If the event was outside of Hull you must apply to the district in which it occurred, 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.
