Birth certificate amendments and additional certificates
Birth certificate amendments
Re-registration of a birth can only occur in the following circumstances:
- to add the father's details if he wasn't present at the registration
- if parents marry each other after the birth of a child
The registrar will advise you of the certificate fees involved; these can then be issued at the registration.
You can buy birth certificates at a later date but they will cost more - again, the registrar will advise you of the fees.
