Essential Maintenance

Due to essential maintenance, our estore payment system will be unavailable at different times between 8am and 4pm on Sunday 14 April. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

You have to register the birth of your baby within 42 days, in the registration district where your baby was born.

Babies born at Russells Hall Hospital and elsewhere within the Dudley Borough can be registered at either Dudley Register Office or Stourbridge Registration Office.

Birth registration

We cannot accept cash payments, all birth certificates must be paid for by card. You can do this online when you book your appointment. If you are unable to pay for certificates in advance of your appointment you will be able to apply online for certificates afterwards at

If you or a member of your household have any Covid-19 symptoms, or you are isolating, please do not attend an appointment until you are symptom free. 

Book an appointment online

To prevent unnecessary waiting for you, we use an appointment system. It is unlikely that we will be able to see you if you come without an appointment.

To make an appointment to register a birth please book an appointment online.

Certificate Boxes

Commemorative certificate boxes are available to purchase at the register office for £10. A lovely keepsake for your child or the perfect gift for new grandparents. Scroll your certificate and store in the box safely.
