Request a copy birth certificate

COVID-19 information

Due to increased workload during the pandemic, we are only able to offer the priority certificate service (see below for fees) from this office.

All non-priority certificate requests should be directed to the General Register Office.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Registration Service holds birth, death and marriage records for the Royal Borough from 1 July 1837 to present day and you can apply to the Maidenhead office for a copy certificate.

Some boundaries may have changed over the years and we will be pleased to advise where applications should be made.

We can only supply copies of birth certificates where the event occurred within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

  • Priority service : £35 - per copy - issued/posted 1st class same day (orders up to 3pm) or next working day.
  • Standard service : £11 per copy - please order via the General Register Office.

You should give as much information as possible to enable the correct register entry to be found and copied for you.

  • Please email us on registrar@rbwm.gov.uk for priority requests. We will call you to confirm and take payment over the telephone.
  • For non-priority requests or to use an online payment system, please apply to the General Register Office directly.
