Purchasing a Certificate

You can apply for copy certificates of any birth, death or marriage registered in Scotland from 1855 to the present date and civil partnership registered in Scotland from 2004 to present date.

Certificates will not be available if the event was registered out with Stirling within the current year.

If you were adopted in Scotland, the event will be registered in the Adopted Childrens Register. If this is the case, contact National Records of Scotland on 0131 314 4411.
