Request a first certificate following a declaration outside of Coventry

If you have declared a birth or death that took place in Coventry, in another district and now wish to apply for a copy of the birth or death certificate you can apply online.

For example: A baby born in Coventry whose parents live in Nuneaton can declare the birth at the Nuneaton Register Office.  The registrar in Nuneaton Register Office will record the details on a form of declaration and send it to the Coventry Register Office, and who will then enter the details in the register. Once ordered the certificates will be posted to you at the specified address.

Costs of certificates:

  • The FIRST short birth certificate after declaration (this will contain details of the child only) is free of charge.

Within 48 hours of a declaration:

  • If you wish to order another short birth certificate after declaration, the fee will be £4.00.
  • The standard birth certificate after declaration (this gives full details of the register entry) is £4.00.
  • The standard death certificate after declaration is £4.00.  

After 48 hours:

  • Any further application for certificates, within 2 – 30 days will cost £7.00.

Once the register is full it is transferred to the archives for permanent preservation.  The certificate is then issued at the following prices. These certificates are produced five working days from order.

  • Standard Copy Certificate of birth or, death (gives full details of register entry): £10.00.
