If baby was born in Blaenau Gwent
Only the parents of the baby may attend to register.
In exceptional circumstances another person may be able to register the baby. If you are not one of the baby’s parents please ring the appropriate office for advice.
When you register you will be issued with one free short birth certificate for the baby. Any additional certificate will cost £4.00.
If your baby was born elsewhere
Each birth must be entered into the register in the district (town or area) in which it happened.
You can attend any register office in Blaenau Gwent and give a Declaration of Birth. The details will then be forwarded onto the office in the district where the baby was born.
Any certificates will be issued by the appropriate office after the birth has been entered into their register. You will not be given any certificates by the registrar taking the details for the Declaration of Birth form.
The office that enters the birth into their register will send you one free short certificate. Each additional certificate costs £4.00 and because the birth details are being sent in the post to another office you can only pay by cheque or postal order.
If you need the certificates urgently, you will need to go to the office in the town where the baby was born to register the birth there.
