If your child was born in the Shropshire Council area, either at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Shrewsbury or at your home, please click on the green button above or phone 0345 678 9016 to make an appointment to register in Shropshire. You can also select this option if your child was born elsewhere, and you understand that you won't be given a birth certificate by a Shropshire registrar. Please note that we're no longer offering the "Tell us once" service for births.
You can also use a walk-in birth registration service at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital however due to covid restrictions, this is temporarily closed.
If your baby was born in the Shropshire Council area you will be able to purchase birth certificates at a cost of £11 each (please note that we only accept card payments). If the baby was born outside the Shropshire Council area, eg in Wrexham, Telford and Wrekin or Staffordshire, you can still make a declaration of particulars but no certificate will be issued by the registrar, and payment for the certificate should be made with the registration service for where the baby was born.
If your child was born in the Borough of Telford and Wrekin, either at the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, or at your home, please use their online booking system or call 01952 382444 to make an appointment to register in Telford. You can select this option if your child was born somewhere other than the Borough of Telford and Wrekin, and you understand that you won't be given a birth certificate by a Telford & Wrekin registrar.
If none of these options suits your particular circumstances, or you live outside Shropshire or Telford & Wrekin, please contact your local registrars. You can find this information on the Gov.UK website.
