Copy certificates

The registers contain the records of all Norfolk births, deaths and marriages from 1837. 

If you do not know the area where the event took place you can contact the General Register Office on 0300 123 1837 and select option 1 for assistance.

How much does it cost?

A copy certificate costs £11.  Certificates will be ready within working 15 days, if ordered by 3pm.

Certificates are then sent out by 2nd class post or, if the date on the certificate is earlier than 31 March 2011, you can collect them from the Archive Centre.

Urgent copy certificates

A priority service is available at £35 for dispatch by 3pm the following day, if ordered by 3pm.

We are only supplying copy certificates by post at this time. Until further notice the collection service is no longer available.
