You need to make an appointment to register a birth.

If neither parent of the child is able to attend in person, call your chosen registration office for guidance.

There are six registration offices in the Stirling Council area. You can register a birth at any of them or at any other registration office in Scotland.

Details of all registration offices in Scotland are available on the General Register Office website.


Before you begin

You should take the following documents to the Registration office:

  • the notification card or certificate of birth given to you by the hospital or doctor
  • your marriage or civil partnership certificate, if applicable
