Register a birth

Important notice - 29 June 2022

Due to a covid outbreak within the premises (Woodlands House) and a subsequent shortage of staff, we are unable to undertake any birth registration, notice of marriages (unless you have a wedding booked within the next 29 days) or make any new bookings.

If your child was born at Queens Hospital, please rebook an appointment with Havering Register Office. If your child was born in Barking, we will contact you to rebook your appointment. There may be a delay in responding to emails during this time.

Thank you for you understanding and co-operation during this time.

Birth registration update

Prams, buggies and wheeled items (unless medically required)) cannot enter the premises. They may be left in our buggy park at your own risk or placed in your vehicle prior to your appointment time. The carry cot or car seat may be detached and bought in with you.
If your child was born in Queens Hospital, you can also register your child in Havering, please contact Havering online Registration Services to make an appointment.
