Certificate corrections

If you registered a birth, death or marriage at our register office, Langtons, we may be able to correct minor mistakes such as occupation or parent's place of birth. For mistakes involving names, gender or removing the wrong father's details, you must apply to the General Register Office (GRO).

Once authorised you will be given a unique reference number which you will then need to use to book an appointment to witness and confirm the correction.
