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. To make a declaration with us you will need to book an appointment.

To book an appointment please contact us by email or telephone.
