If you have recently had a baby, the birth will need to be registered. This must be done within 42 days of the birth. The registration process is very simple and no appointment is needed.
Where can I register my child's birth?
You have two options for registering a birth:
- in the Registrar's office in the district where the child was born
- in the Registrar's office in the district where the mother lived at the time of the birth
Our Registrar’s Office is located in the Museum & Civic Centre, 11 Antrim Street, Carrickfergus.
What information will I need to register?
You will need to fill in a Birth Registration Form.
This should be completed by the person who is registering the birth (normally the child's mother or father). For further information on who can register a birth please contact the Registrar’s Office. (028 9335 8047)
We use this information to complete your child's registration.
Please note that a registration cannot easily be changed once completed.
What will the Registrar give me?
The Registrar will issue the following:
- One short birth certificate free of charge.
- HS123 infant registration form to help you register with your family doctor and obtain your child's medical card.
Further certified copies are available at the time of registration.
There is a charge of £8 per copy for these copies.
