By law, all babies born in Northern Ireland must be registered within 42 days of the date of birth. This is free and can be done in the Registrar’s Office in the district where the child was born or in the district where the mother normally lived at the time of the birth.

Registering a birth in Craigavon is very simple and no appointment is needed.

Registrar’s Office opening hours

Monday to Thursday: 9am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 4.30pm

Friday: 9am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 4pm

WHO CAN REGISTER A BIRTH?

It is the primary responsibility for the mother or father (if a married couple) to register the birth. If this is not possible then the following people can register the birth:

  • grandfather or grandmother
  • uncle or aunt
  • occupier of the premises where the baby was born
  • any person present at the child's birth
  • any person who has charge of the child.

WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO BRING?

You will need to fill in a birth registration form. This is usually completed by the person registering the birth (normally the child's mother). You can download a copy of this here: Birth Registration Form

You will also need to provide the full name, surname and sex of the baby, the date and place of birth and the full names, addresses, dates of birth and occupations of the baby's mother and father.

Please note that a registration cannot easily be changed once completed.

WHAT WILL I RECEIVE?

Once the birth is registered, you will receive one free short birth certificate and a HS123 infant registration form to help you register with your family doctor and obtain your child's medical card. Additional certificates, either short or full, may be purchased at the time of registration for £8 per copy.
