Ordering a copy of a certificate
We can only provide birth, death or marriage certificates that were registered in Southwark from 1900 to the present day. You can order certificates online with a secure online payment.
Please note that there will be a statutory increase to certificate fees from the 16 February 2019:
- £11 for any certificate
We accept all major debit and credit cards and cheques (payable to London Borough of Southwark).
Allow up to 15 working days for your certificate to be produced and sent out. If you urgently require a certificate, we'll do our best to accommodate you as quickly as possible. However, we do offer a express certificate service which is only available in person.
- certificates will be posted to you by second class post.
