Where to register
Births in Barking and Dagenham must be registered at Woodlands House Register Office. We no longer issue free free short birth certificates. Buggies and prams must be left in our buggy park.
If you are a Barking and Dagenham resident but your child was born in Queen’s Hospital, Havering, you can also register the birth with us.
