Commemorative certificates

How to request a certificate to commemorate a special occasion.

This service is not available because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Certificates can commemorate any special occasion such as a wedding anniversary or a birthday.

What is on the certificate

We are able to tailor your certificate to make it personal to you. We are also able to put a special message on the certificate.

Commemorative certificates are printed on high quality paper - ideal for framing - with both the Oxfordshire Coat of Arms and an attractive border in full colour.

Although these certificates have no legal status, they are a lovely memento to keep and they make a great gift for grandparents and other relatives.

We do require proof of the birth or marriage in the form of a birth or marriage certificate - a copy will do.

Alternatively, use the general Commemorative certificate application form (pdf format, 142Kb) and tell us what you wish to commemorate.

Send it to us, enclosing a cheque for the required amount made payable to 'Oxfordshire County Council' and a A4 stamped self-addressed envelope.
