Birth Re-registration Booking Questions


COVID 19 Update:

We are currently not undertaking these appointments whilst we prioritise Birth Registrations and Notice of Marriage and Civil Partnership Appointments - Please do not proceed.

We need to establish that you are correctly registering the event in Shropshire. By answering the question on this page we will be able to help you better.

** Note: Re-registrations are for parents who were not married to each other at the time of the original registration.
If the parents are unmarried and would like the natural father’s details added to the birth record, they require Form GRO185 before making an appointment.

If the natural parents have married each other since the birth, they are required by law to register their child so that a new birth record can be created to show the child as a child of the parents' marriage. To do this you have to complete a Form LA1.

Both forms can be downloaded from the General Register Office website or by selecting the links provided.

Before making an appointment you must have completed a form LA1 or GR0185 and sent it to the Shropshire Register office, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY2 6ND.  We will write to you to confirm that you are able to make an appointment. 

If we have not written to you please do not make an appointment - you will not be able to complete your business.

If you were married outside this country and are seeking a re-registration you should contact the General Register Office, on 0300 123 1837
