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. Please note: We no longer take postal applications. Certificates are usually produced within ten 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 ten working days. You should allow at least 15 working days for the return of a certificate by post unless you have paid extra for priority ordering.
