At present due to disruption caused by the Coronavirus we are not taking any bookings for birth declarations. We will keep this page up to date as the situation develops.

To register a birth with us 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 of 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. 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 a birth certificate by post to your home address. At present we are unable to take any bookings for birth declarations. The website will be updated once we are able to take appointments for birth declarations.
