Order a birth certificate online

Birth certificates are available from 1864 to present. You can order a birth certificate online from the General Register Office Northern Ireland (GRONI). You will need a credit or debit card to use this service.

Before you start

GRONI’s office is now located at Colby House, off Stranmillis Road in Belfast. 

You can order a birth or a commemorative birth certificate online. You will need a credit or debit card and the following information:

  • full name of person whose birth certificate is required
  • date and place of birth (district or street and town)
  • names of parents (including mother's maiden name)
  • mother's address at time of birth

The General Register Office cannot issue a certificate if you have not given the full details needed when you order.
