Birth and death registration

You will need to arrange an appointment to register a birth or death. If you are registering a stillbirth, a walk-in service is available.

You will have to create a MyNewham account at to be able to access the online appointment booking system.

Do not book an appointment to register a birth until you have received your child's discharge letter - without the discharge letter, the child cannot be registered by Newham's registration services.
