Copy Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates

We can only supply copy birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates and civil partnership certificates for events that have been registered within Milton Keynes. If the birth, death, marriage or civil partnership occurred anywhere else then you need to contact the Register Office for that area - this includes any Declarations as these are not registered in Milton Keynes.

Use this form to apply for a copy birth, death, marriage or civil partnership certificate online.

If you were married in a church or place of worship in Milton Keynes, then you must contact them in the first instance to see if they are still holding the register. Please do not order a certificate from us until you have done this as we are not able to refund fees where the register is still with the church or place of worship.  

The quickest and easiest way to obtain replacement copies of certificates held in the Milton Keynes Register Office is by ordering online, using a credit or debit card.  If you are applying from an overseas address please enter the postcode MK2 2BE on the first page and thereafter use your correct address details.

Certificates are produced and posted first class the 5th working day after we receive your order (order before 3pm Monday and we post on Friday).

We also offer a priority and express service whereby the copy certificates will be posted the next working day or same working day (if ordered before 3pm on a working day). There is a fee for this service, which is in addition to the certificate fee.

Enquiries about adoption should be addressed to the General Register Office Adoption Section.  Certificates from the Adopted Children Register can be made online via the GRO website or by telephoning the GRO on 0300 123 1837.

If you have very little or no detail regarding a registration aside from a name, then you can contact the General Register Office who can do a more in-depth search for all the districts in England and Wales.
