Register a birth

Birth registrations - coronavirus update

The safety of our staff and customers is very important to us and after careful preparation, planning and training we are pleased to announce that the online booking system is now open for babies born in Barking and Dagenham or at Queens hospital and who's parents live in Barking and Dagenham

If your child is more than 42 days old, the booking system won't allow you to book unless you select a birth date within the last week. This is only to book the appointment and won't affect your child's birth date on their certificate. 

Register a birth form

Due to a reduction in office space, We will only be registering births on Monday to Thursday. This may mean that you have to wait longer to register your child at Barking and Dagenham.

If you child was born at Queens Hospital, you can also book an appointment at Havering council to register a birth.

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.
