We are responsible for providing a service to the public to carry out their legal duties to register all births occurring within the City of Westminster.
We hold records of all births that took place within the City of Westminster from 1837. We also provide telephone and email advice and help on re-registering births and correcting the legal records.
|Certificate production changes|
All our archived registers will be moved in storage from 24th June to 1st September 2013 to allow for the register office move out of Westminster Council House.
During this time, we will be unable to provide birth, death and marriage certificates from registrations within the City of Westminster (or the former boroughs of Paddington, Marylebone and Westminster)*.
If you need a copy of a certificate during the above time period, please contact the General Register Office.
*In urgent circumstances, birth certificates from 1990 to present day may be purchased at the Westminster Register Office. However we cannot guarantee a same-day service for these certificates due to relocation of our records.
In addition, we regret we will be unable to undertake corrections to archived registers during this time.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Whatever your interest, Westminster City Council welcomes and encourages you to get in touch with suggestions for improvements to the site. Please tell us how useful this page was to you.
If you're getting married or registering a new birth this summer, you could star in a new series on ITV1.
Opening hours: Mon - Fri 9am - 4pm (open at 1pm on first thurs of the month) Sat 9am - noon (appointment only)
