Copy Certificates for events that were registered in Hull
You can order birth, death, marriage or civil partnership copy certificates from us for any life 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 a 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.
Copy Certificate Service
You will have the option to choose if you would like your certificate(s) to be posted to you or if you would prefer to collect your certificate(s) from the Register Office at the Wilson Centre. If you need your certificate urgently you have the option of accessing our premium service.
You are also able to purchase a keepsake folder. Selecting this option means your certificates will be in an A4 presentation folder. Most certificates are A4 in size and therefore purchasing a folder means that your certificate will not be folded to fit into a DL sized envelope. Marriage certificates for marriages registered before 4 May 2021 are landscape in shape and will have one folder if purchased with a folder.
The fee for this service is £11 per certificate.
Certificates will be posted within five working days of request. Postage is first class.
