Adoptive birth certificates

How to get a copy of your adoptive birth certificate.

If you were adopted and require a copy of your adoptive birth certificate, which will be needed for most legal purposes (a passport or driving licence for example), you can apply online on The General Register Office website.

What you'll need to tell them:

  • your name after adoption
  • your adoptive parents' names
  • your date of birth
  • your place of birth.
