Registering a birth

If your baby was born in Southwark (eg at home), you must register the birth at Southwark Register Office within 42 days.

For births outside of Southwark at one of the local hospitals (St Thomas’ Hospital and Kings College Hospital), you need to contact Lambeth council. We'll assist you with a declaration of a birth which will be sent to the register office.


There is no fee to register a birth.
