To register a birth you will need to:
- register the birth within 42 days of the birth (as per the legal requirement)
- check if the birth took place in the borough of Harrow
- book an appointment with the register office
Babies born in Northwick Park hospital
If your baby was born in Northwick Park hospital you should register the birth at Brent register office.
Babies born outside the borough of Harrow
If your baby was born outside the borough of Harrow you may use our services to make a declaration of the birth. This means you will not receive your baby's certificate at your appointment. Instead, the details of the birth will be forwarded to the relevant office in the borough where the birth took place and they will then issue the birth certificate by post to your home address. There is no fee for making the declaration at Harrow, however the borough issuing the certificate will levy a charge for it.
