How to get a copy of a birth certificate

If you want to get a copy of a certificate for a birth that was registered in Coventry you can apply online or by telephone. Certificates are usually produced within five working days of making the application. For an extra fee we offer a priority service where certificates can be issued within 24 hours of ordering.

Telephone applications need a card payment. Please have these details ready when calling. The certificate(s) will be posted within five working days. You should allow at least 10 working days for the return of a certificate by post unless you have paid extra for priority ordering.

What information do we need?

  • The name or names the certificate applies to
  • The date of the event
  • The place of the event
  • Parents' names for a birth certificate
  • Any other information that may help us find the certificate
