Order birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates

We can supply official births, deaths marriage and civil partnership certificates for events that have occurred in Scotland from 1855. As we cannot supply a priority service at this time, we will answer your email in a timely manner.

We can only issue a certificate if it was registered in Scotland. If it was registered in England or Wales, please visit the General Register Office website.
