Register a birth

Birth registration update

At present and due to the backlog of appointment that we currently have, we are only undertaking births registrations for births that occurred in Barking and Dagenham.

If your child was born in Barking and Dagenham, please complete the registration online form and we will contact you to make an appointment.

If your child was born in Queens Hospital, please contact Havering Registration Services to make an appointment.

We hope to have our booking system for babies born in Barking and Havering (Queens Hospital) open in approximately 2 weeks’ time and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our website will be updated to advise when it will be available to book an appointment online.

Due to very high demand for our service, please do not call or email the office regarding birth registrations.

Whilst you are waiting for a birth registration appointment, you can still make a claim for child benefit or make a claim for universal credit on GOV.UK without registering the birth.

Please check our latest Covid-19 advice page before visiting.
