These would include Armed Forces, Consular, High Commission or Embassy registrations. Please bear in mind that Birth registration with the British authorities is not compulsory when overseas, and a duplicate certificate can only be issued if the Birth certificate has been deposited with either the Embassy or Consulate within the country of Birth, or at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London upon return to the United Kingdom.
The certificates are always produced by an official registration office and can be validated at any time. Where British nationals are born abroad, we can additionally supply copies of certificates relating to any United Kingdom births abroad registered at a Consulate, High Commission, or with the Armed Forces. This service only applies to those births that have actually been registered with the United Kingdom authorities.
Under United Kingdom law, birth certificates are known as Public Records which means that any person can apply for a copy of any certificate, providing that they know the details of the birth that is required. This can be helpful for both government and legal services needing proof of birth, as well as family history (genealogy) researchers looking to discover new ancestors. Please note however that where we believe an application to be connected with an attempt to obtain information for the purposes of identity fraud, the application may be rejected and details passed to the relevant police authority.
If the child has subsequently been adopted, the birth certificate can only be obtained if the original birth name of the child is known. We cannot issue a birth certificate under an adopted name, unless the adopted name is the same as the birth name. In these cases, you should apply for an Adoption Certificate instead. The birth certificate of an adopted person will be written on showing that the birth certificate is now out of date as it has been superseded by the adoption. Therefore it will rarely be needed for any official purpose, with the Adoption Certificate replacing the birth certificate for official purposes.
