Due to the sensitive nature of stillbirth registrations, the procedure for ordering certificates differs from other types of registration.

Order a copy certificate of a recent stillbirth

Registers in current use are held at the local register office.

Only the child's mother or father (if the father's details are included in the entry) can obtain a copy.

Order a copy certificate of an older stillbirth

Certificates from older registers can only be obtained from the General Register Office.
