Copies of certificates

Obtaining Birth, Death, Marriage or Civil Partnership Extracts (or Certificates)

  • You may require a replacement duplicate copy of a lost certificate.
  • You may be interested in genealogy and want certificates for their family tree.

Whatever the reason, we can provide full certificates, suitable for any purpose, for events registered anywhere in Scotland.

If the Birth, Death, Marriage or Civil Partnership was registered anywhere in Scotland (between 1855 -2011) you may obtain an Extract (or Certificate) by one of the following methods:

  • in person at any of our Registration Offices
  • by post (cheques made payable to Stirling Council)
  • by phone using a credit/debit card

These methods apply to all of our Registration Offices

The cost per extract is £15.00. Events registered in the current year are only available from the place of Registration (at a reduced cost of £10.00 within one month of registration.)

In order to obtain an extract it is helpful to know:

  • the full name or names
  • the date & place of the event
