Births in England and Wales must be registered within 42 days of the birth. This can often be completed at the hospital or at the local register office. If the parents are married to each other, either parent can register the birth.

A birth must be registered in the District in which the birth occurs. However, if a birth occurred in another District, a declaration can be made at any register office and forwarded to the appropriate register office.
